Architecture Design of House on Siena Way
Description About The Project
House on Siena Way designed by SPF Architects, tucked into a steep hillside lot in Bel Air, resolve the site’s challenges to offer the owner a stunning house with the comfort for daily activity. As well as bring the spectacular view to the nature. Indeed, by following the natural contours of the site, the designer maximized the plan, pulled the building down into the site. And stepped the massing to follow the topography. Hence, the result is a non definable curvilinear form, still abstracted in architectural geometry. But with a more fluid and organic shape.
In order to resolve the complex geometries on the exterior of the house, we revisited stucco as a facade solution, despite its historical overuse. Requiring very few joint lines, the stucco looks almost monolithic, pairing well with the bronze-painted aluminum slats found on the exterior. Uniting the interior is a restrained palette and consistent finishes: walls are white, while floors and wall paneling are walnut. The stone throughout is light beige, a color that is repeated in the travertine entry wall. Besides, reversed from the traditional approach, the entry level consists mostly of ‘public’ spaces while the lower level contains most of the ‘private’ spaces include living room, dining room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom.
In addition to this, the courtyard not only provides daylighting but brings nature to some of the most frequently used areas of the house, allowing the frequented areas of the upper level to experience the tree’s crown and the lower level to experience the olive’s trunk. Appearing relatively modest from the street, the home is secretly expansive.

Text by the Architects: Tucked into a steep hillside lot in Bel Air, the 14,000 SF House on Siena Way tested our firmly grounded modernist principles. With three full designs produced due to changing stakeholders and client interests since 2013, the main goals of the project never changed, namely: to resolve the site’s challenges in an elegant way, deliver sufficient square footage despite onerous building height limitations, and provide both an intimate family setting and expansive entertainment abilities for the future residents.
