Architect Greg Lynn created this quirky, contemporary home in 2010 for a family in Los Angeles, California, USA.
It features a sculptural light fixture, fireplace, and strategic pops of color that add character and warmth to the otherwise monochromatic space.
Bloom House by Greg Lynn:
“The Bloom House is an infill house situated on a 35’x90’ lot with views of the Pacific Ocean.
The exterior is a box with a series of eyelet shaped windows with stainless steel trimming the outer edge of the windows.
The trim runs continuously along the east and west facades and turns the corners to the north and south facades where corner windows are located.
The interior of the house is massed with curvilinear surfaces which emerge from ceilings and walls to define enclosures, furniture and light.
There are 2-1/2 stories with the garage, maid’s room and utility rooms located on the submerged level.
On the first full level the living room, dining room and kitchen terrace up from the front yard at 30” height intervals.
Across the length of this open space is a luminous fiberglass lantern attached to the ceiling.
Between the dining room and kitchen are 2 small curvilinear enclosures which contain the powder room and office. In the living room, a wall bulges to define the fireplace.
Three bedrooms are located on the upper level along a spine of shaped walls. In the master bathroom, master bedroom and second bathroom, the walls are shaped from thermoformed Corian.
The upper hallway wall, the 2 small enclosures and fireplace on the lower level are framed with laser cut vertical wood fins that are sheathed with lath and plaster.”
