• Art Aerie

    A condo nested high above Santa Monica Bay was expanded to include the adjacent unit so that 20th Century modern art would be the loci of the resultant remodel.   The concentration of bold paintings and objects is softened by an entry of stacked vertical grain bamboo that opens to ocean views and the continuous overlapping public space punctuated by slotted lighting and distinctive furnishings in the living and dining areas.  The kitchen contrasts, stainless, teak, and pristine Corian counters anchored on alabaster Terrazzo floors.  The master continues the Terrazzo’s materiality which frames and fuses as the monolithic tub.  The architect’s own art piece is the bath’s over-sized Tangerine-colored cast-resin sink. Which, its deep hues drenched in western sun, soars like a translucent geometry above the Pacific.
