Tom Kundig‑designed West Hollywood Home Featured in Architectural Digest


In an issue devoted to California architecture, the November 2019 edition of Architectural Digest features a Tom Kundig-designed residence in West Hollywood. Known as “Collywood,” the home maximizes sweeping views of downtown Los Angeles and the Hollywood Hills.

The home balances public and private spaces, providing a venue for large-scale gatherings as well as a private master suite and rooms dedicated to the client’s hobbies. A series of operable window walls blur the boundaries between inside and out, extending the living space outside into the temperate Southern California climate.

“The house expands and contracts easily,” says Tom Kundig, FAIA, RIBA, Design Principal. There’s always something that feels more protected and something that feels more open.”
