Sited on a flat pad near the end of the street, the two-story, 13,000-sq-ft Bronze House replaces a dated single-family home. To preserve existing views, the neighborhood follows strict neighborhood restrictions that limit any new construction to no more than one story out of grade. Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerThe Bronze House cleverly defies the directive not with an affront but with a building that both creates a good neighbor and answers the spatial requirements of our client. The home does not build up but digs into the sloping site to unearth additional square footage.Save this picture!Plan – Lower floorSave this picture!© Matthew MombergerSave this picture!Plan – Upper floorSave this picture!© Matthew MombergerKey to the design is a central atrium topped with an expansive 100-foot-long operable skylight which infuses the ground floor and basement levels with light. Light-wells located along the north side of the property, also mitigate any dim spots that come from building below grade, as do glass and steel stairways and “sky bridges” and a southern face clad in glass.Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerThe home’s sculptural element is both functional and expressive. A 22-foot cantilevered trellis stretches out to a strip of lawn and an infinity pool. The cantilever offers respite from the sun during the day while also adding dynamism to the structure. Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerSave this picture!© Matthew MombergerClad in bronze anodized aluminum bars—that are prefabricated, panelized, and mechanically fastened—the sheen of the cantilever responds to changing weather patterns and lighting conditions; the metal blends into its environs as the sun drops, almost appearing black, but also reflects daylight, revealing a bronze hue at different times during the day. Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerSave this picture!© Matthew MombergerThe Bronze House was designed on a strict orthogonal 20×20-foot grid. Although not overt, the geometry is experienced on the interior, inducing a calming sensation as one begins to uncover the order within the details. That being said, although the home is established around a 20×20 rule, it does deviate from this edict with purpose.Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerAt the front and rear ends of the home, the walls flare out to create a subtle geometry that yields a wing-like shape as if to capture or embrace the environment. The move was intuitive as the residence is located on Nightingale Drive in the “Bird Streets.” In short: Why not create a building that is an abstraction of a bird’s wing?Save this picture!© Matthew MombergerProject gallerySee allShow lessUdan Crematorium / d6thD design studioSelected ProjectsBaigorria Residential Building / BBOA – Balparda Brunel Oficina de ArquitecturaSelected Projects Share Year:  CopyHouses•Los Angeles, United States Architects: Studio Pali Fekete architects Area Area of this architecture projectcenter_img “COPY” A Bronze House on Nightingale / SPF: architectsSave this projectSaveA Bronze House on Nightingale / SPF: architects “COPY” A Bronze House on Nightingale / SPF: architects United States Photographs:  Matthew Momberger Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs CopyAbout this officeSPF:architectsOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesLos AngelesOn FacebookUnited StatesPublished on May 13, 2021Cite: “A Bronze House on Nightingale / SPF: architects ” 13 May 2021.
