    Default Indoor-outdoor living, California modernist style

    The two wings of the Radziner-Cottle House are joined by a spacious, sunken kitchen with a walnut ceiling and cabinets ó and views to the pool and garden.



    Dusk offers an illuminating glimpse into the house; an outdoor living area is at the right, just beyond the family room and under the master bedroom




    The 11-foot-high living room is entered through the tall, narrow front door; the sliding doors at left open directly onto the pool.





    The master bedroom , in true modernist fashion, is small and functional; a wall of cabinets opposite the bed conceals books and a television. As in many of Ron Radzinerís projects, the cabinets, metalwork and most of the furniture were fabricated by his firm.

    I love the outdoor area. I'm drooling over that.

    Meh - more boring brown buildings. The kitchen is lovely but hardly any storage and where's the fridge? Not a cook's kitchen for sure. Not wild about the dark timber ceiling either.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    ... the kitchen suits a holistic, raw-food/vegan health freak type of woman.

    I get a very earthy, minimal vibe from it.

    It's not my dream house, but I like it. I wonder if the kitchen has a pantry that we can't see in these shots.

    The kitchen is beautiful, not very practical, but beautiful.

    Why do these modernist houses always look like no one lives there? I really hate perfectly stacked books. And wtf is a lamp doing in the corner of the kitchen?

    i love it.
    the outside looks like the ex-wife and fiancť's house in 'californication'.
    my only qualm is the kitchen. no storage and no fridge would bug me.

    A bit too much dark wood for my taste, but I like the architecture.
