Ohayon Residence

Bel Air, CA

The Ohayon Guest House, located in Bel Air - California, is a 1,200 square feet dwelling with 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms.

Organized on two stories, the entuire  enclosure is raised off the ground allowing the natural topography of the site to flow naturally under the building, minimizing the site intervention and the need of retaining walls, while maximizing the view of the Getty Center which is located at the west side of the property.

On the first level - south wing is located the living space with open kitchen and dining area, all connected to a large terrace cantilevering over the property; while on the north wing are located the two bedrooms. North and south wings are separated by the entry and an open patio designed around an existing tree.

On the second level is located the master bedroom which also has access the large roof terrace designed to entertain while enjoying the natural alcove in which the building is located.
