Mulholland Estate Residence
Date: 2015 - 2017
Location: Mulholland Estate, LA
Project Team: Julia Watson + Alajajian Marcoosi Architects
Mulholland Estate is an exclusive, gated community in Beverley Hills overlooking Westridge-Canyonback Wilderness Park.
The three-story house is located on a hilltop with an infinity pool overlooking views of the canyon. A contemporary modernist garden, inspired by Italian landscapes and Roman streets, creates a relaxed yet refined outdoor living room that borrows the surrounding expansive views. Unique landscape features include an infinity pool, fire pit, citrus orchard and a palm grove that was inspired by the Vatican gardens.
