Victoria Meyers architect
(hMa) was hired to design a renovation and addition to an existing house in the Hollywood hills
. The house is at the top of a hill, and the edge of the site has commanding views of Los Angeles
. The client hired hMa based on their award-winning design for the Holley House, in Garrison, New York
. The client admired hMa’s handling of the site, and integration of nature outside and inside the house.
hMa is showing initial design studies, to give a sense of how hMa works with clients. hMa begins projects with working models, as well as 3-D renderings to capture the overall feel for the design. hMa also has a reputation for Green Design. As the Master Plan Architects for Battery Park City's North Neighborhood, hanrahan Meyers presided over the development of over 1 million square feet of green construcion, including the first ever built LEED certified residential high-rise building, the Solaire.

These images are just partial materials for the design process, which includes a model, as well as plans and other drawings. James Ackerman once said: ‘to view an architect’s drawings is to look inside the architect’s mind, and understand how they think about design’.
