Einstein Residence, Brentwood Thirty years ago, we designed the main house - 3500 square feet around a central walkway stepping up a sloping site. Fifteen years ago, with a growing art collection, 3500 square feet were added. The rectangular geometry of the original house was extended as a curving stairway sweeps uphill in a continuing progression of spaces.
Faceted glass walls act as a foil to the right angle geometry of the house and allow the softness of north light. The circulation system terminates in an indoor / outdoor sitting pavilion with the sculpture garden and natural outdoor amphitheater on one side and the gallery space serving as a cloister for art on the other.
It is a fusion of art, architecture and natural beauty.
