One of LA's most unusual homes: This pioneering work of vertically interconnected spaces defies domestic convention, incorporating ideas once promoted in The Whole Earth Catalog now staples of architecture and sustainable design. Geometry and materials create a distinct character for each interior environment. Flexible live-work arrangements are accommodated within the cavernous concrete lower levels, illuminated by a dozen skylights, earth sheltered and topped by a green roof for maximum thermal efficiency. The mid-level galley with its exposed structural timbers has the feel of a treehouse, offering panoramic valley and mountain views. The colorful geodesic dome above shelters a vast interior studio volume for meditation, art, rehearsal, performance, or entertaining. Interior area totals approximately 1812 square feet on landscaped grounds of nearly 1/4 acre. Suitable for an individual or couple comfortable in a genuinely alternative habitat. Convenient to public transit, freeways and neighborhood shopping areas.
