Hover House 3 represents third house in the series of Hover Houses designed by Glen Irani Architects, located on the Venice Canals of Los Angeles, CA. The design of the house focuses on maximizing outdoor living environments by structurally “hovering” the building envelope above the ground. In architect’s words, “Unlike rooftop living environments, Hover Houses’ are comfortably shaded, integrated into the landscape and provide much needed permeable land for ground water replenishment. The hope is that the Hover House concept sets a standard in temperate regions for eliminating significant portions of the interior floor area in exchange for exterior living areas, thus saving resources and reducing the project’s carbon footprint.” Check out the pictures.
