Home of the Week: A clear-through view in the Bird Streets

Set high up in the Bird Streets neighborhood of Hollywood Hills West, this contemporary home makes the most of cityscape views. A curving roofline and bands of clerestory windows deviate from the home’s clean lines and bring in natural light throughout the day. Glass walls leave little to the imagination, taking in a terraced courtyard in the front and a panorama of downtown L.A. in the rear.
