Norwich Residence, Private Home Architecture in Hollywood, California

August 28, 2013 By: archinhome Category: Home Design, Interior Design, Modern Home

Norwich Residence is Private Home Architecture in Hollywood, California. Designed by Clive Wilkinson Architects. This project in November 2004 until May 2007 at 3,300 sq. ft floor areas. The building is a smooth stucco box – a vernacular LA type – with the living areas opening up to the exterior via large sliding glass doors. The house’s environmental performance is passive and uses basic sustainability ideas: electrically operated skylights exhaust hot air using a chimney effect in the double height space – and keep warm air inside during winter, insulation is optimized, underfloor heating is provided on ground level and the outside landscape uses a low water xeriscape approach, with a mostly gravel ground cover suitable for the desert location. From another sustainable viewpoint, the house is located in walking distance of the owner’s office, as well as walking distance of about 35 restaurants and bars, reducing car use considerably.
