Michael Lee Architects THIS ARCHITECTURAL FIRM PROVIDES UNIQUE AND DRAMATIC SOLUTIONS

Since its inception in 1991 Michael Lee Architects has focused on the design and construction of primarily residential projects throughout the Los Angeles Basin. Serving as the principal architect or in collaboration with others, the firm has been honored by the American Institute of Architects and published internationally. The current portfolio includes residential, mixed-use, office rehabilitation and restaurant work with the priority remaining always on providing unique and dramatic architectural solutions. This 6700 sq ft single-family residence sits on the “Carla Rim” in the Trousdale Estates section of Beverly Hills. The house is unusual in that, though it is all on one level, the entire southern side of the house opens to dramatic city and ocean views. The kitchen, living room, and family room look across a private courtyard and a mosaic lined infinity pool toward Catalina Island and the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Varying roof and ceiling planes with clearstory windows between them delineate the interior spaces, and skylights illuminate the interior of the house, providing an ever changing show of light and shadow throughout the day.
