This stunning residence tucked away in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles which was featured in a recent issue of Interior Design Magazine; in this case the interior design and exterior design are in perfect harmony. The main residence is 10,000-square feet with a 2,000-square-foot guest house that encompasses a large courtyard and swimming pool that overlooks a tennis court. Interior design features include vaunted ceilings, exotic woods, veined marble, and of coarse furniture from design greats like Antonio Citterio, Eero Saarinen, Robert Bristow, Arne Jacobsen, and the Castiglioni Brothers just to name a few. Minimalist architects use space as a design feature in and of itself. Instead of trying to fill space with features, they create designs in which the empty space is as carefully thought out and used as everything they add to the room. Basic shapes and straight, clean lines are also important techniques used in minimalist design, as is playing around with different kinds of lighting. The outcome is elegant but without being fussy.
