Last Sunday, FORM attended the AIA Home Tours series on The Hills: From East to West. We liked what we saw. The four homes were open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. The highlight of the tour was the Bel Air abode of builder Mauricio Oberfeld, designed with Zoltan Pali of Studio Pali Fekete Architects. Also showcased were the Lago Vista Guest House, an all glass and green modern villa set in the hills of Beverly Hills, SteelHouse designed by Marc Angell and Sarah Graham of agps architecture, and the Briarcliff View House, designed by John Pugliese of Cambia Designs LLC.
