My Home As Art :: Three Peaks House :: Bing Yeh, Architect

Tucked into a quiet Hollywood Hills enclave, the bold, tri-point roofline of architect Bing Yeh’s Three Peaks House appears and recedes from view as you approach the site. This classic 1990 modern architectural home represents the best of the era’s design. An entry stairway leads to a truly grand living room featuring a nearly wall-to-wall curved steel hearth, dramatic, triangular 30-foot ceilings, extraordinary gallery walls, a 20-foot picture window with views of the Hollywood sign and a geometric open stairway, highlighted by a steel interior balcony. The open kitchen, with pressed concrete counters and bi-level outdoor cafe decks, is located on one side of the living room and a media room with private office is situated at the opposite end. The peaked ceiling motif is repeated in the bright master suite, where circular, square and rectangular windows allow the sun to illuminate every height and angle. The master bath is clad in white shiplap, with pale grey concrete counters, dual sinks and closets, separate tub and shower. A loft-like walkway with steel, cable and glass railings overlooks the living room and connects the master suite to an additional 2 bedrooms, with shared deck and updated guest bath on the other end of the home. The walkway also accesses a secluded, rear entertaining deck framed by mature succulents. This distinctive home is a study in geometry and an ideal gallery for artists and art collectors in an exclusive Hollywood Hills location.
