The new Forest Knoll Residence, an 11,184 square foot home in the Hollywood Hills inspired by architect Louis Kahn’s Kimbell Art Museum, is just gorgeous. Designed by Architects Silvia Kuhle and Jeffrey Allsbrook of Standard Architecture, the three gabled home is filled with light, white oak and travertine flooring.

The home is hard to miss. With three soaring parallel gabled roofs, it stands out on the hill from the other covetable Hollywood Hills homes.

The 11,000 sqft. 6 bedroom 9 bathroom home consists of three large connected volumes. The outer two are each two stories with the bedrooms and bathrooms located on the upper floors. The center space, whose ceilings are double-height at 26 feet, serves as the entry point to the home.

A travertine walkway, lined with olive trees, leads you to the home’s entry – a large impressive solid oak door – and continues inside to the expansive living and dining space.

A mezzanine level with glass balustrades in the center connects the two lateral structures and serves as a sunny sitting area.

The streamlined kitchen is in keeping with the rest of the home. It has white oak wood flooring and cabinetry of golden oak. The cooktop is set within a wood-clad island topped with granite.
