The new Bridge Residence turned the challenge of a sloping site into an opportunity to evoke quiet seclusion while creating a grand statement.
Belzberg Architects has fostered a reputation for creating beautiful and functional architecture and interiors by exploring unconventional methodologies. Our design approach is holistic; while we nurture a collective curiosity and dissect critical issues, our solutions take into account the realities of construction. This ethos has resulted in a diverse portfolio of award-winning, built work.
Since we started in 1997, we have continued to call Santa Monica, California home. Our portfolio is not defined by typologies, scale, or geography, but rather we are driven by a desire to explore the design potential of a given project. Our clients include large institutions, commercial businesses, consortia, and private individuals, and the diversity of our collaborators continues to grow.

The Tree Top Residence celebrates the site’s complex landscape, merging with it seamlessly and emerging from it atop the canopy of trees that surround it. Built along a natural ridgeline, the long and narrow plan of the three-story house mimics and inverts the angles of the site’s topography, creating dynamic vertical and horizontal relationships.
