Glass House - Villa In Malibu
Often what takes the biggest toll on an individual’s well-being is the feeling of isolation. The removal from society, from nature, from community, dries up the fluidity of the mind. It stalls it in a place of loneliness, separate from the emotional stimulation of outside interaction. When I created this home, I was motivated by removing those barriers. From every angle, this home invites you to interact, both with nature, and with each other. The walls are glass and retractable, creating a unity between the home and the scene directly outside. The trees, the grass, the insects and birds, they’re no longer a product of a separate environment, they are a part of your home. The dining, kitchen, and pool areas are all seamlessly connected, making an environment that offers union, rather than separation.
