Here on one of the most distinctive architectural streets, surrounded by the likes of R.M. Schindler, Harwell Hamilton Harris, Gregory Ain, J.R. Davidson and A.E. Morris, this unique home by architect Sean Briski continues a long history of architectural experimentation. On one hand the home is clearly Modern, with poured-in-place concrete, exposed structural steel, orthogonal volumes & rhythmic fenestration. On the other hand, the CalArts-trained painter turned architect used the project as a laboratory for alternative materials: shredded tire tread curtains, glass panels filled with foam packing peanuts, & basketball hoops as room dividers. The resulting composition is both disciplined yet playful. The home fits the hillside like hand in glove, cascading from garage at street level to Master bedroom at the bottom. Spectacular views through floor-to-ceiling glass, hardwood floors, custom cabinets, & stainless appliances complete the sophisticated experience.
