Upcoming Event: Fall 2010 Home Tours - Sunday, Sept. 19

Next Sunday, September 19, AIA Los Angeles will host the Fall installment of the 2010 Home Tours, entitled "THE HILLS: FROM EAST TO WEST." The event is from 11am - 4pm and will feature homes by Zoltan Pali, FAIA of Studio Pali Fekete architects (SPF:a), Marc Angélil and Sarah Graham, FAIA of agps architecture, John Pugliese, Assoc. AIA of Cambia Designs LLC, and Aleks Istanbullu, AIA of Aleks Istanbullu Architects.

One of the luxuries of being an Angelino is enjoying the geographic diversity in the Los Angeles region. From ocean to valley to urban sprawl, Los Angeles offers its population any number of excellent locations to live, work and leisure. Perhaps most representative of the glamorous LA lifestyle is the Hills, bordering the northern part of the city. As a fertile territory for iconic residential architecture (see past modernist case studies) the Hills demonstrate the best in collaborations between classic and contemporary.

The tour will begin in the Los Feliz Hills, with its small lots and breathtaking views of Hollywood and downtown. Next you will be directed to a home off of Nichols Canyon where you can get a sense of LA Canyon living-quiet, peaceful and secluded. No tour of the Hills would be complete without a sample of glitz and glam living above the Sunset Strip. And finally the tour will take you the historical Trousdale Estate with a smart example of modern contemporary architecture in the form of a guesthouse. The ultra-modern guesthouse stands in juxtaposition to its more traditional counterpart but the complimentary structures confirm the harmony between contemporary architecture and a traditional landscape.
