Built in Venice Beach near Los Angeles, USA, this next architectural masterpiece seems surprisingly roomy, although it covers only 200 m2. With its unique shape, the residence built by Anthony Coscia is a suspended canopy, defined by a continuous surface that determines its shape.
Three floating platforms connected by a large atrium make up the structure of the home, creating a self-sustained structure, unobstructed by columns or walls. The sloping floor protects the privacy of the inhabitants while the frameless glass walls offer enough light to turn the home into a bright place to live.
The exterior colours, black and white, were inspired by the Yin Yang duo, creating a balanced visual appeal. Surrounded by vegetation, the whole house has a magnificent connection to the environment. The ground floor features a glossy art gallery / living room, a kitchen and a dining room. A suspended ladder acts as a bridge to the 9 meters high atrium that leads to the south-facing living room, while a short ramp to the north leads to the rooms and services.
