Arts District Loft

Housed in a 1924 warehouse, the Arts District Loft highlights its industrial bones with a modern mix of furnishings. Much of the 2,000 square-foot space was left open, relying on a raised platform to define the living area. Made from oak planks formed in a herringbone pattern, its gray stain complements the exposed concrete floors and ceiling, while wood and leather tones offer a warm contrast. Custom bookcases create a partition between the main living area and the master bedroom. This casework rotates 90 degrees, allowing natural light to flow in from windows facing the south and east — which also afford views of downtown Los Angeles.

  • Tenkawa Fishing Cabin

    With a concrete facade and green roof, the Tenkawa Fishing Cabin blends into its riverbank setting. The rectangular structure sits cantilevered over the edge of Japan's sacred Mount Ōmine, where its gray exterior becomes one with the bedrock foundation. Separated by a plywood partition, the interior's linear floor plan consists of a guest bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom on one side, and the master bedroom, living area on the other. Sliding doors at the far end of the home expand the inside out over the river and exposing the mountainous landscape.

  • Inverted Pyramid House

    Balancing on a rural hillside in the Spanish region of Matarraña, the Inverted Pyramid House seems to defy the laws of gravity. Like the exterior, the inside doesn't follow traditional design. Rather than walls and stories, the interior consists of multiple staircases connecting a series of cantilevered platforms — each one housing a different function. More private areas are located in the upper mezzanines, overlooking the communal living spaces below. Earlier renderings see an outdoor pool mimicking the structure's geometric form, while current plans show a centrally located pool with direct passages to the three bedrooms.
