The Shoshone native American tribe called them teewinot, meaning “numerous peaks”. The first French explorers baptized them les trois tétons, “the three breasts”.

The house immerses itself into the hillside and accentuates the distinct views of both Los Angeles and the Santa Monica mountain range. The two master bedroom modules hover above and further frame this unique condition. The swimming pool dramatically establishes the cliff’s edge, even extending beyond it at one end. Concealed within the hillside are a large theater, movie prop museum, parking, spa and bedrooms.
