    Default A Coldwater Canyon guest house

    Santa Monica architect Aleks Istanbullu crafted this Coldwater Canyon guesthouse for Dorrie and Paul Markovits, who wanted a place apart from the main house to read and listen to music. Istanbullu drew up plans for a retreat that took advantage of the site’s dramatic canyon views, but the initial concept of a pure, cube-like space soon gave way to practical considerations. A back structure was added to the house — a bedroom, bath and kitchen — so it could function as a guesthouse. Here, four granite islands in a pond lead to the entrance, where a large pivot door brings the outdoors in.






    The reverse view: A mitered-glass window makes for uninterrupted canyon views, and two smaller awning windows open to bring cooling breezes into the living room. A transparent floor made of three-quarter-inch-thick laminated, tempered glass looks down onto the lily pond.

    To heck with the views-I'd just like a few days in that library.

    That bathroom looks like they stole it from a Motel 6 or something equally lavish. I love the rest of the house.

    Like the style, but couldn't the baby shit green color have been something different?

    ^Exactly.
    If the puke colors were gone, I'd like it a lot more.
