californian practice edward ogosta architecture has designed ‘four eyes house’, a weekend residence within the desert of the coachella valley, outside of los angeles, california. derived from the specific site location, four towers dedicated for sleeping are oriented towards spatiotemporal experiences including the morning sunrise in the east, southern mountain range, evening city lights to the west and the celestial sky overhead. the top floor bedrooms contain solely a bed, filling the footprint of each tower, which are of equivalent area allowing family members to change based on their personal preference.

the elevated sleeping quarters alters the dwellers sensation of sleeping and waking, intensified by natural events including the earth’s movement, slowly rotating under the stars. to access the common areas of the home, vertical circulation ranging from a ladder to spiral, switchback or shallow riser stairs connects directly to the common area. the spaces are loosely defined and enclosed with frameless glass walls allowing a permeable relationship with the swimming pool and landscape beyond.

  • Architecture, concept, surroundings and car are far above magnificent and iconic! The choice for funiture however is a cliché.
