Cube House: A Modern Victorian (And Inspiration)November 22, 2006
If you missed it on the AIA home tour, at least you can still see it in print pixels.
“The house now has an open-to-the-sky, two-story atrium surrounded by open-plan rooms, and the design echoes the interior gardens of 1950s Eichler homes, which in turn were inspired by Japanese- and Mediterranean-style courtyard houses.”
“Despite its modern additions and bright interior, it is still literally and figuratively sheathed in tradition, with a refurbished facade and detailing that match the other historic buildings on the block.”
“For a bit more than $750,000, the Alexanders have all that space [3,600 square feet] and new wood everywhere: anigre in the bedrooms, mahogany in the library, cherry cabinets in the kitchen and stained Douglas fir French doors.”
It’s brought to you by architect John Maniscalco (and the Alexanders).
