Houses are often designed to stand out. The Oak Pass House was designed to blend in. The home is located in Beverly Hills on a piece of land dotted with 130 Coast Live Oaks. By burying the bedrooms into the hillside and below a vegetated roof of edible herbs and grass, this sleek structure hides its 8,000 square foot enormity. Up top, you'll find the public spaces, with large glass windows and limestone floors that lead out to a 75-foot infinity swimming pool that slyly flows below the branches of the property's largest tree. Built using structural concrete, the bedroom level has long uninterrupted stretches of space, walnut floors, and a courtyard that allows light and fresh air into the hallway. The property also includes a two-bedroom guest house.
