    Default Caverhill house is a slice of heaven on the hillside





    ( Christina House / For The Times ) By Chris Iovenko

    With a long span of angled panels lining its futuristic facade, this L.A. house near Mulholland Drive looks monumental, almost imposing. But pass through the front gate and enter the main living area, and one feels a remarkable sense of air and light. At a time when so many people are looking for an escape from reality, the home of Don and Debbie Caverhill certainly provides one. After a 1.5-year design process and another 1.5 years of construction, the home by Culver City-based Studio Pali Fekete Architects now stands as a contemporary indoor-outdoor replacement for the old house that once stood on the difficult site.

    The view is fabulous but the house itself has no personality either inside or outside.

    That view would be almost worth it.

    I actually like the outside, inside, and layout/spaces of the place, but you are right-it needs some more touches outside to humanize it(maybe some color, some landscaping other that grasses, etc.), and it acually needs to be decorated and furnished for human habitation-get rid of that horrendous evil stuff that is being called furniture in this place!

    It kind of looks like they took the Pearl Harbor Memorial and plopped it from on top of the sunken Arizona to a hillside in LA.

    Got a nice big plastic liter of UV Vodka (cheap, but works!). And hey, no broken glass!

    Wish I could have a big ass party in this house with really good vodka. Dare to dream!
