One of two Michael Ferguson-designed homes on our tours, the Wilson Residence in Venice is a testament to the evolution of the neighborhood: a traditional bungalow site transformed into the setting for a sleek two-story abode. Photo by Steve King Architectural Photography.
When he returned to Santa Monica after sailing for nine years, including through islands in the South Pacific, architect Thane Roberts began developing a philosophy called "evo-tecture." The design process emphasizes connection over privacy, and elements are seen throughout his family home, Meridian House. Photo by Sara Jane Boyers and Martin Cox.
AIA architect David Hertz, known for 747 Wing House, looked to the structure of a butterfly wing when designing this Venice home. The inverted roof of Silver Triangle House (or Butterfly House) captures water that collects in a sump and is used for subsurface irrigation. The roof is just one of the home's sustainable features, which, Hertz says, "are not compromises to the design; they're part of the design." Photo by Laura Doss.
This three-bedroom home in Lille, France, is made up of eight stacked containers.
