The modern geometric M-Vista home in Los Angeles, California is composed of a collection of daring folds, sharp angles and various volumes connected on the 10,000-sq.-ft. property. This contemporary design by Santa Monica-based Tighe Architecture incorporates a number of buildings, which are structured around a private central courtyard that invites the outdoors into these modern living spaces. From the outside, this cool house is characterized by its unique folded roof and walls. Windows, seemingly scattered about the facade, were strategically placed to frame the fabulous views. Inside this two-storey home, the details are simple, and simply impeccable. A soaring focal wall features cut-outs that echo the home’s windows, with a skylight at the top as its crowning glory. The finishes are minimal yet luxury, like the rich wood floors, and the gorgeous kitchen featuring warm woods and cool stone tiles, enclosed in a wall of windows with a pool-side walkout. A guest house and pool house are mirror images of one another. Tighe Architecture.
