lIVING ROOM FIREPLACE SEATING AREA

The chairs were designed by the famous Architect Le Corbusier

 

LIVING ROOM COZY END

The chair is a Thonet design from early 1900 much

admired by the famous Architect Le Corbusier.

 

 

This bedroom corner is where it all comes together.

One can easily imagine a Frank Lloyd Wright fireplace

in the brick pier.  I am not a fan of bedroom fireplaces.

 

 

Notice how the square interior light fixture is mirrored by

the exterior roof ventilation opening and how the cypress

soffit continues inside to form the underside of the cove.

 

APPROACH VIEW FROM CUL DE SAC.

 The trees will hide the Living Wing

 and Garage wing in about two years.

 

 

APPROACH VIEW FROM DRIVEWAY. 

As you move beyond the screening trees there is a full frontal

view before you swing left into the gravel motor court.

 

We have arrived at the gravel motor court.  This is the fortress side of

the house, punctured  only by the breezeway and the entrance door

 

The entrance reveales itself when you get close enough.

 

This is one of five different interior views which present

themselves when you walk through the front door.

 

 

Close-up of corner window with mitered glass

 

The intersection of the glass with the brick pier is

invisible from this view.  The pier appears to be a

freestanding element even though it is an exterior wall.

Interior space seems to surround the pier.

 

Built-in cabinets cascade downward around the pier from the corner window

to the base of the banquette.  The cabinets conceal the corner joint between

the floor and the pier and the banquette conceals the joint between the

floor and the exterior wall behing the banquetts.  This is not an accident.

The design depends upon cooperation between the built-in furniture and the

enclosing structure. 

 

Floor to ceiling corner mitered window looking out to the South Terrrace.

 

Built-in cabinets at the entry designed to among other things make a place

for the ten gallon double eagle jug.

 

Four incandescent lights in the Office illuminate a desk below.  These

lights are the same design as lights in the coves.  Note that the top of

the box is open allowing circulation of air to cool the bulbs

 

One more corner mitrered window.  All of the corner windows are single

glass in order to make an almost invisible joint between panes.  The heat loss

is negligible in the overall envelope performance.
