Explore an award-winning ‘upside down’ canyon home in Beverly Hills

With subterranean spaces dug into the hillside

Some 130 oak trees encircle this contemporary Los Angeles property by Noah Walker, earning its moniker in the process. But there is as much going on inside the ‘upside down’ canyon house as there is outside…

Oak Pass House was completed in 2015 by Walker Workshop, and was awarded the AIA award for ‘best architecture of the year.’ It borrows from the lexicon of midcentury modernism, with a low-slung roof and large glass walls that maintain sightlines across the four bedroom property.

The living room, kitchen and shared spaces are set inside a glass-box ‘pavilion’ to make the most of far reaching views. Bedrooms are dug snugly into the hillside plot below, while a cinema and gym are burrowed even deeper.

Textured concrete and walnut panelling hone the modernist vibe inside the Los Angeles property – on the market via Compass with price on enquiry.

A subterranean courtyard draws light into the lower floors, while a 75-ft-long infinity pool bisects the house and flows beneath one of the most massive oak trees on its 3.48-acre plot.
