The Pentagon designs a Radius house with sharp angles + curved surfaces
the home radius is an architectural gem that has just hit the market in the Venice district of Los Angeles. Behind the design is based in Los Angeles Pentagon who designed the 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom residence with both a sculptural exterior and interior. The white exterior features sharp angles, curved surfaces and large windows resulting in a geometric structure with a bold presence.
Inside, walnut is used throughout the kitchen, as well as for the curved shelves and the structure of the spiral staircase. Warm wood contrasts with white Venetian plaster walls and radiant-heated concrete floors.
Cantilevered stairs create an illuminated atrium that fills the interior with natural light.
In the private spaces on the second level, the flooring changes to a white oak wood.
The house wraps around three sides of a courtyard where Sarita Jaccard Design created the landscaping. A raised slab of basalt houses the pool, deck and fireplace, acting as an “outdoor activity bento box”.
The Radius house is currently up for sale with Engel & Völkers Santa Monica.
