Aaron Neubert Architects have designed the Tilt-Shift House, today’;s house which has a striking, bold, black exterior, located on a steep slope in the hills of Los Angeles.
Concrete stairs with a minimalist black handrail lead up to small covered deck that delivers protection from the elements and access to leading door.
A semi-transparent front door and large windows allow day light to fill the interior of the house.
Inside, the family room, dining room and kitchen share the same open space, while located off the family room is yet another small deck with space to sit outside.
Back inside, the upper 1 / 2 of the kitchen is kept bright with the use of white walls and wood shelving. The lower half with the cabinetry is matte black, creating a strong contrast to the rest of the kitchen.
Simple wood stairs with a black handrail connects the many levels of the house.
Upstairs, there’s the master bedroom with floor-to-ceiling, black-framed windows that flood the area with light.
A door that matches the windows allows the home owners to get access to a deck with views of the neighborhood.
In the master bathroom, there’s a big wood vanity with a white counter and round mirrors. Next to the vanity is really a small nook with a laundry room, and opposite the vanity is the shower with a glass surround and a bathtub positioned to make use of the views.
At the back of the home, there’s an exclusive patio area with tall white walls, outdoor dining and a lounge area.
