Live Modern: Oberfeld Residence
Architecture & Interiors
Um yum this house has some pretty neat window things going on here. The first photo we saw of the Los Angeles-based Oberfeld Residence, by SPF:a‘s Zoltan Pali, was of a pretty standard-looking modern kitchen. Dark woods, gray tones and not a lot going on characterized it. But then we started flipping through the photos and started getting blown away. The shape of the home and the design of the structure allows for some really neat configurations of glass and walls to create places where the ceiling is made of glass, and long hallways create stunning views. Getting to see a big blue sky with puffy clouds while still in a house is a pretty amazing thing, and it’s almost as if the sky itself was built into the home as an element. From Architizer:
“The house’s L-shape and the glass-clad main floor wrap around the backyard with its big, flat lawn and infinity pool. Down in the basement the amenity-fest includes a see-through wine cellar, a screening room, and a spa with sauna and massage room. Bedrooms are on the second floor, which is also covered in glass, and protected with vertical white cement louvers. Top it all off with crazy custom finishes, like wood made to look like stone and stone made to look like wood.”
What do you think about being able to the sky from your house? Cool or why not just walk outside?
