Living in Los Angeles has its perks, and a temperate, snow-free climate is certainly one of them. Architect Barton Myers of Barton Myers Associates was able to capitalize on the sunshine when he designed this innovative pad using Charles and Ray Eamess 1949 Pacific Palisades home as his muse.
The most creative elements are the glass-and-aluminum roll-up garage doors. They allow the indoors and outdoors to be seamlessly connected at the owners discretion. Each of the doors make up the back wall of the living room and kitchen area, so cooking, lounging, and entertaining can be done outside without the added inconvenience. At night, the steel structure is illuminated by the up-lights installed at the base of each of the exterior posts.
Maybe fresh air enthusiasts will take note of this fantastic design. My only question is: what about the bugs?
