1301 Collingwood Place an Olson Kundig-designed Masterpiece Took Six Years to Complete

“If you start with the primacy of the site, everything else becomes a direct response to that particular place,” says Tom Kundig, FAIA, RIBA, owner and design principal of Olson Kundig.

“I think it is important not to compete with the landscape—built or natural—and to acknowledge the place of architecture within the larger context.”

This philosophy pervades this impressive project designed on a promontory, offering a breathtaking panorama. Built on a 29,279-square-foot lot, the 15,642-square-foot house comprises five bedrooms and eight bathrooms. 

“Tom Kundig worked directly with the owner to create his first residential masterpiece in Los Angeles,” says Rayni Williams of Williams & Williams at The Beverly Hills Estates.

“The bi-fold system isn’t just architecturally interesting, it also has multiple purposes. It completely locks down on the outside of the house for security and provides shade as overhangs.”

Organic wood, stone, and concrete combine in this entertainer’s compound spread over three levels. In addition to the sleek interiors with floor-to-ceiling windows, the property, which is surrounded by a grove of 125-year-old olive trees, has an expansive deck with a fireplace, lounge, and array of pools. Providing uninterrupted views of the LA skyline, this elegant and modern house awakens all the senses.

According to Tom Kundig, “Lasting, successful architecture has classic roots and acknowledges universal principles of proportion, scale and sense of materiality. But then there is that leap that happens when you take those principles and rethink them. Maybe this causes a little ripple in the built environment.”
