Steve Wozniak’s California Mountainside Home

St Leon 10 House by SAOTA and Antoni Associates

February 12th, 2013

Stefan Antoni Olmesdahl Truen Architects and Antoni Associates designed this home, St Leon 10, for a family. The goal was to create a space for casual, intimate family occasions or large get togethers. The view from the house looks out over the 12 Apostle Mountains and the Bay. This home is located in Bantry Bay, Cape Town.

The building is cut into the slope with approximately 50% of its rear face below the natural ground level. The upper level floats over the essentially glazed South West facing first floor and this exaggerates the height of the building relative to the adjacent ground level.

ANTONI ASSOCIATES were appointed as the interior decorators. On the entrance living level the interiors are kept to a neutral palette with a subtle play on texture in materials and fabric selected. Soft cream leathers and weathered timber finishes layer the interior with luxurious elements. The overall feel is warm and inviting.


Costa Esmeralda House by BAK Arquitectos

December 16th, 2012

BAK Architects is known for creating beautiful concrete homes in Mar Azul, Argentina. This house was also built in Mar Azul as a summer home. Words from the architect:

We decided to solve the house in two volumes perpendicularly intersecting in “L” at different levels, opting to provide more privacy to the volume that contains the private uses of the house by resting over the level of the lot and placing it perpendicular to the front. The higher volume, of public use, is resolved alongside the front line taking advantage of the acacia trees that provide privacy and allow the enjoyment of the far views into the wilderness environment, in turn its elevated position sought to provide the house some presence from the street leaning out slightly above the level of the acacias. This volume was generated as an elongated prism, supported at one end over the volume of the bedrooms.

Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills

November 11th, 2012

Last week I checked out the Avalon hotel in Beverly Hills. At first it seemed unlikely that the interior was nice because of the size and location, but the hotel had an amazing cool, mid-century vibe. The original architecture consisted of three buildings. Koning Eizenberg rennovated the building in 1990 to maintain historical style, but also make it a stylishly retro hotel. My favorite part about this hotel is the courtyard and amoeba shaped pool in the center.

Sheats Goldstein Residence: Interview with James Goldstein

October 24th, 2012

John Lautner was one of the greatest architects. He designed this home back in the 70s in the hills outside of Los Angeles and eventually James Goldstein purchased it from the original owner. This glass walled home in the Hollywood Hills has been used many times in photoshoots and in movies. To live in this home would be extraordinary.

View more images of this house or of Lautner’s work.
