Ray Kappe, F.A.I.A.
THE LIVINGHOMES PROGRAM, 2007 - Reviving not just the physical aesthetic of the Case Study Architects who worked in steel and glass, but also the high spirited idealism that accompanied the work, Kappe and Living Homes have moved the Case Studies triumphs and lifestyle they represent right into the 21st Century. Energy inefficiencies which for 40 years virtually outlawed the steel and glass house in Los Angeles have been overcome so successfully that this house will be awarded LEED Gold Certification. Once again, the garden and nature are one with interior space now proportionally scaled to today's expectations. With open plan public spaces elevated to the views, the residence includes: a dramatic 2 story entry, 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, media room, attached 2 car garage, living decks, cover patio and garden.
