Midcentury and modern

An original 1950's post & beam house and a newly designed addition. Midcentury aesthetic married with honesty of materials. A beautiful transition between inside and out. A design that respects the site and the natural vegetation (yes that is a tree wending its way through the room). Privacy and a sense of voyeurism. Steel and wood and glass. It's love on my part. The Runyon Canyon house by Mike Jacobs Architecture.

Drooling over here.
Mid century modern homes are great, right? But what makes an MCM house magical is when it's set into nature just like this one. There's something so cool about the cleans lines of modernism mixed with the organic vibe of nature. Opposites attract!
