BRENTWOOD, LOS ANGELES

Situated at the upper end of a private lane, this half-acre property was accessed through steep driveway with sharp switchback. Reducing the driveway gradient was central to

owners’ decision to remodel the front yard. Working closely with structural engineer, CLO developed a terracing system of walls that improve driveway access and pitch to the house. CLO design features entry gate and columns, driveway, walls, stairs, and path surrounded by richly planted hillside. Draping Jacaranda trees along with stylish teak gates provide enticing and elegant sense of entry to the house.
