contributed by piotr_krajewski

This private house in Venice examines the relationship between land and water; it deals with the timeless aspect of Los Angeles - not the topical. Every possible intervention has been tried in L.A., in an attempt to transform it and to divert it away from its original landscape. This house turns its back on the land, on the interventions. It focuses instead on the ocean by setting up a series of vantage points that have to do only with the ocean and the imagined realms beyond. In the entry, the divergent lines of the granite 'runway' reverse the perspective, space is collapsed and the ocean brought closer (text from architect's website).
