Located at the end of a canyon road in metropolitan Los Angeles, the San Lorenzo House from Mike Jacobs Archiecture is a masterpiece of open plan living. The house is comprised of two interlocking L-shaped structures, connected by a central living space. That central facade is formed of steel and glass, with light billowing into the room thanks to glazing along the full length of the south wall. Social exchange is key to the success of the house, with the windows wall of the living room sliding almost full open, in contrast to the smaller, more private windows of the bedrooms. Measured outdoor space and a swimming pool complete the house to provide an enticing outdoor area.
