Olson Kundig Architects created a camouflaged concrete house called ‘The Pierre’ in San Juan Islands, Washington.
Again I ask: why can’t more houses look like this? Why can’t something like this be the common style? Why can’t boring or ugly be aberrations?
The textures, the materials, the color palette, how it tracks sunlight, the traffic flow, the balance between indoors and outside. So lovely.
Apartment overlooking Bondi Beach. Beautiful details. Almost hidden from the street.
I love architecture. Art you live in.
Sadly, 95% of all homes are ugly (to me).
Here is one example of a house that stirs my emotions. Even more inspiring is that it is a remodel.
Of course, the decorating is as much of the design as the floorplan. The point is that the details here are so refined.

It’s called the “Iron Man House”, and apparently it was an inspiration for Tony Stark’s fictitious digs in the films.
It really is the “Razor House” by Wallace E. Cunningham.
It was on the market for $25 million. The DailyMail reports that the mansion has been sold to a ‘mystery buyer’ in the Eastern Coast of United States for USD 14.1M.
A beautifully integrated design; all the sumptuous pieces fit with each other. Concrete and glass and curves and dramatic lighting and texture for warmth. Stunning
