The Hollyridge Residence


Originally built in 1989 and once owned by Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Anthony Kiedis, this two-story Hollywood Hills home was transformed from a mish-mash of architectural styles into a light-filled home that captures enormous views of the nearby Hollywood sign.

The home had previously undergone multiple owners and renovations, giving it a mostly Southern California Mediterranean look with a Spanish tile roof and small windows. AUX worked within a budget to produce an impactful and transformative design without structurally changing the home’s rooflines. The main focus was on opening the house up to the Hollywood sign view and emphasizing indoor-outdoor living with lighter and brighter spaces. AUX’s design used a strong contrast between a black exterior and a bright white, museum-quality interior. The result is a completely new look for a home that anchors one of Los Angeles’ most desirable streets.
