    Default Beverly Hills house


    Bertram house new


    ( Christine House / For The Times ) By David A. Keeps

    Architect John Bertram lives in a historic 1939 Richard Neutra house and is clearly influenced by the innovative modernist icon known for homes that connected indoor and outdoor spaces. "One thing that I love about Neutra's buildings is that they are made of interlocking planes, almost like a house of cards," says Bertram, who recently completed this Beverly Hills residence. Built on a flat lot, the house is animated by stacked roof lines with deep eaves and steel fascia trimming, dramatic structural walls that jut out into the landscape and multiple bands of cornered windows -- all part of Neutra's vocabulary. "Even though it's a relatively simple two-story structure, it has the feeling of a cube-shaped house that is flying out of control and unraveling into space," Bertram says.

    I like the view. That's about all.

    I like it, but it just doesn't have the feel of a "home". It's got that white sterile commercial look.

    ... of course I wouldn't say no if someone gave it to me!

    The inside is lifeless, except perhaps the shelf in the kids room that's full of transformers. Yes, I have a six year old and can spot that damn Optimus Prime a mile away.

    the exterior does nothing for me, or the foot shaped coffee table. the first bedroom and the dining room are rather odd, but i like the other rooms more than some others i've seen.
