The existing roof geometry is accentuated creating a language of faceted surfaces. The articulated volume of the building’s front facade extends indoors to define the interior spaces, resulting in a dematerialization of the roof, wall and floor planes. A forced perspective is created, framing the extraordinary views out to the Santa Monica Bay.

The minimal, gallery-like living space is designed to accommodate the client’s extensive collection of contemporary art. Display niches, lighting and the configuration of the spaces are designed to enhance the experience of viewing the art.

The stair is designed with cantilevering steel treads, each with a custom laser-cut pattern. Light from the skylight above filters through the perforated stair to project an ever-changing texture of shadow and light on the walls and floor.

A grand entry door made of a stainless steel tube frame marks the threshold into the relatively small house. The 10’ high door makes use of a hydraulic pivot and a concealed magnetic locking device.

Sustainable features include a 5kW photovoltaic system.  The solar power is linked to a charging station in the garage for the client’s electric vehicle. Terrazzo flooring contains hydronic radiant heating. Energy efficient building systems and a sustainable material palette are used throughout.
