Hover House in Los Angeles



Hover House in Los Angeles_image Click image to enlarge
Situated on the Venice Canals of Los Angeles, California, Hover House 3 represents the third in the Glen Irani Architects’ Hover House series.

This series focuses on maximizing outdoor living on small lots by ‘hovering’ the building envelope above the grade level in order to create space for outdoor living environments.

This series proposes that interior living space be reduced in favor of less resource-intensive outdoor living amenities.

While this 3-bedroom, 2-office, 2500sf house already represents a substantial reduction in indoor floor area , the inhabitants of this and two other Hover Houses (including the architect’s own house) enable the architects to study the effectiveness of this model and refine an approach to suit mainstream culture.
