This house is the epitome of unusual architecture, with many different materials and technological and environmental requirements of modern construction techniques used throughout its build. At the front of the house, there are unusual exterior details such as the rusty coloured, metallic panels that bend at different angles and have many holes bored into them and the top floor of the house that appears to teeter on the edge of a different volume. The house was built around the old pine tree at the rear of the house to help preserve its structure and also provide a natural alternative shade for the sunny days of the year. The glass wall in the backyard creates a smooth transition between indoor and outdoor living spaces and with a total area of 260 square meters, this two-storey house is spacious and open. The house was designed for one family by Modal Design and is located in Venice, California, USA.
