Hover House by Glen Irani Architects

This is the second home in the Hover House Series and its architects’ main purpose with this project was to eliminate the isolation between the front and rear yards by simply “hovering” a part of the dwelling over the outdoor living area. This design also ensures protection to the outdoor living spaces, because even the lovely climate of California can sometimes turn harsh.
The unusually shaped roof folds over the clerestory and allows a lot of natural sunlight to flood the upper floor of this 4,000 sq. ft. house. Glen Irani Architects also kept in mind the importance of building sustainable dwellings when they made this project. High-efficiency mechanical systems, sustainable wood finish, PVC cool roof technology, window shading and minimization of long term maintenance and refinishing are a few of the measures they took in this respect.
We also love how the interior spaces have been arranged. Warm color schemes and welcoming furnishings make this four-bedroom house a really lovely place. The floating staircase in the living room and the glass bridge above is what particularly caught out attention.
