Cotten-Elliot House, Roy D. Cotten, Builder 1991

Roy Dennis Cotten designed the De Stijl-inspired house for himself and Claudia Elliott in 1991. The abstract design attains an aesthetic balance using projecting and receding boxes enveloped in monochromatic grey. The house, perched on a hillside above Griffith Park Boulevard in the Franklin Hills of Los Angeles, California, can be seen from a great distance. Located at 2216 Ronda Vista Drive.
