Today you can learn about the private residence Tigertail designed by Patrick Tighe Arcitecture, and also see it in the photos below. This extraordinary 300 sq. ft2 located in the mountain town of Brentwood, California, USA.
The architecture of the building is the result of an attempt to blend as seamlessly as possible into the surroundings.
The peculiar two-story geometry of the house combined the details of an existing building on the site, the opening views, and the sturdy walls needed for security and privacy.
Curved lines frame the house and the flat walls and roof are an extension of the hilly terrain. The exterior is decorated with metal, while the interior is dominated by wood. As a result of invisible transitions, the wood seems to blur the boundaries between walls, ceiling and floor.
The design opens up fully with stunning views of the city and ocean, as well as the nearby Getty Center.
