Los Angeles architect Barbara Bestor's firm, Bestor Architecture, embeds its manifesto "Everyone should experience strange beauty every day" into all the work it produces, and it shows in her recent creation, 3660 Toro Canyon Park Rd., Santa Barbara, California.
No detail has been left to chance, either in the high modernist structure or its gorgeous water-efficient gardens of cacti and succulents, reminding us of the famous quote attributed to Meis Van Der Rohe, "God is in the details". In the modernist tradition, the structure's lines are long and rectilinear, finishes are all natural materials, and boundaries between indoors and out have been gorgeously blurred. A 25-foot expanse of telescoping glass panels frames a panoramic view of the entire Santa Barbara coastline. The home is organized around 3 courtyards, in order to bring in natural light and calm strong winds.
Do you think you could live here? If you can afford 12.9 million dollars, and like to relax, entertain, ride horses, and swim, this might be the place for you!
