Where does the story for a centuries-old building truly begin? As it pertains to Italian artist and architect Vincenzo De Cotiis, the question is not nearly as interesting as to how the story ends, particularly in the case of the austerely done residence he designed inside a badly neglected palazzo near central Milan.
Spread over 11,583 square feet, it comprises an impressive double-height foyer and entry hall with floor-to-ceiling windows, a cascading water wall, and greenery, immediately reflecting the high level of design and craftsmanship.
Idyllic and peaceful, the natural landscape on which this 3,600-square-foot contemporary home sits is one of the elements that makes the project unique.
Located along Pacific Coast Highway, on the west side of Los Angeles in Westchester, Hotel June reflects the soul of the city.

Stuart Silk, principal at Stuart Silk Architects, has had a long-time relationship with the homeowners of this project, David and Rosangela, having had already designed several projects for the couple. When presented with the opportunity to create a new home for his established client, one in a stunning alpine setting with soaring peaks all around, he jumped at the chance.
Sheathed in stone and rich in character, this period set-piece is at the heart of a sensitive intervention based on Modernist doctrine by architect Richard Found of the London-based practice Found Associates.
