Mid-City Modern :: P XS Architects





















This combined office and home with pool and integrated landscape is comprised of three systems: a long galvanized metal wall folds over to serve as the roof and carport; a series of material samples separated by glass forms the envelope; and an exposed concrete slab on the grade contains radiant heat, plumbing, electrical, and up-lighting. The 104-foot long wedge evolves from a 22-foot wide studio, through a combined kitchen-lounge-gallery, to an 11-foot wide bedroom at the eastern end. With no interior doors, two floating cores for storage and bathrooms provide the only spatial separation, aided by the production of distinct moods though the disposition of materials and the organization of lighting conditions. An 18-foot long ribbon window transforms traffic into a continuously changing cinematic event. A large “letter box” opening in the living area offers deep views of nature across neighboring backyards. Titled the Off-Use House by the architects, this unique space has been featured by Architecture, L.A. Architect, The Los Angeles Times, Metropolitan Home, and Sunset magazine.
