Lookout House

Lookout House Ike Kligerman Barkley Architects

Clients chose to retain the eccentric 1979 structure of the property and commissioned a gut renovation and extension.
The original pyramid form of the house, which is centered on an open-plan double-height living space surrounding an indoor pool, was lightened and simplified with a contemporary material palette (including bamboo, bluestone, and glass tile) and a new lighting program.
A glass bridge—an “architectural synapse” that clearly differentiates old from new—connects the main house to the master suite.
Like the original structure, the new suite is a large volume enclosing a smaller one—in this case, a freestanding cube, finished in claro walnut, that divides the sleeping and bath areas.
