Mid-Century California House . Mid-Century California House inspired from the iconic style. . Constructed using approximately 5,000 standard Lego bricks in mostly neutral grey tones, the Labelle House measures 22” deep x 17” wide x 10” high. The homes’ design was inspired by several California mid-century modern architectural masters, including John Lautner, Richard Neutra and E. Stewart Williams. This home, constructed of steel, stone, glass and concrete, takes some of its cues from Stewart Williams’ Edris house, as can be seen in the dramatically projecting slanted roof plane. The section of roof that projects over the front entrance contains solar panels. The prominent roof pivots from identical massive walls which are constructed from irregularly cut concrete blocks, a modern interpretation of a typical mid-century modern stone wall. There are several ways to enter the house, from inside the 6-car garage by elevator, or by taking either the staircase to the left, under the house, or the dramatic freestanding concrete staircase to the right that lands in front of the glass walled infinity-edge pool. There is a home gym located in the house at ground level adjacent to the glass-walled pool allowing for dramatic views of swimmers doing their laps. A stacked sandstone wall that deconstructs as it surrounds the pool is reminiscent of the stone used by Richard Neutra in his Kaufmann house. An all-glass entry door is situated behind the 3-storey high concrete wall which leads to a soaring glass enclosed space with a view throughout the entire first floor. The front of the house is glazed in Pilkington Profilit glass to allow privacy while letting in maximum light. The sides of the house feature large panes of plate glass.
