    Default Architect Clive Wilkinson's home




    On a narrow lot, he arranged intersecting "barns" containing the master bedroom, kitchen/dining area, and living room around a mini-park of a yard. An outdoor Weblon drape screens the living room.


    The front yard is defined by a grove of gnarled olive trees planted all the way to the street, hiding the stucco house


    A terrace designed with the local landscape in mind offers a "pebble beach." Metal rods were threaded through bamboo to make balustrades and window screens in a few hours. The chair is by Artifort.


    In an artist's studio, Mr. Wilkinson gathers a chair by Ligne Roset, a flower cushion by the artist Takashi Murakami and his own painting of a figure.


    "Everything was based around the question, how simple could you do it?" Mr. Wilkinson said. Inexpensive ceramic pennyround tiles by Dal-Tile - usually seen in old kitchens - were "draped" around the tub's edge.


    On the living room's nubby wool carpet, designed by Mr. Wilkinson, a white Tod coffee table by Zanotta and a black Patricia Urquiola table sit by a screened cabinet hiding the stereo system and cable box.


    Ideas from Mr. Wilkinson's workplace designs appear throughout: easy-to-mop white rubber on the stairs; a handrail of tension cable that meets code while creating a high-tech effect; a large communal table, carved by his father. The Notte pendant lamp is from Prandina Lighting


    Mr. Wilkinson effectively turned the home office upside down, with plank wood on the ceiling and a ceiling-white floor of rubber, a move that also created a dramatic contrast between rough and sleek. An office desktop is suspended from beams, for a floating effect.

    Love the natural timber dining table - the rest is generic "I'm an architect" bollox.

    The bathtub is rocking my world, but I wouldn't want to clean it. The kitchen is terrible, even worse than the honeycomb cubby holes.

    I love the bathroom tiling. Other than that, it's like every edgy architectural concept squished into a couple thousand square feet.
