The Echo House Is Spread over Three Floors That Follow the Sloped Landscape

Situated on some of Los Angeles’ notoriously hilly land in the Elysian Heights neighborhood, the Echo House and Studio span three staggered levels that follow the natural slope. ANX / Aaron Neubert Architects, Inc. designed the hillside home with a street level two-car garage with the living spaces taking up the multi-level second floor. The open living area features a double-height ceiling with floor-to-ceiling windows offering views of downtown LA and the surrounding landscape. A staircase leads to a loft, kitchen, dining room, and terrace before heading up to the top floor that houses the three bedrooms and two-full bathrooms.

Up the hill behind the main house is a 400-square-foot artist studio whose architecture references the larger structure.
