Dear readers, today you can learn about the Tigertail private residence designed by Patrick Tighe Arcitecture and see it in the photos below. This extraordinary 300 m2 home is located in the high mountain town of Brentwood, California, USA.
The architecture of the building is the result of trying to blend the apartments as seamlessly as possible into their surroundings.
The peculiar two-story geometry of the house combined the details of an existing building on the site, the views and solid 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 of the house is decorated with metal, while the interior is ruled by wood. As a result of invisible transitions, the wood seems to blur the boundaries between walls, ceiling and floor.
The design is fully revealed with magnificent views of the city and ocean, as well as the nearby Getty Center.
