Organic Modern Estate by Ken Kellogg AIA

In California we find this odd villa whose exterior almost looks like the back of an armadillo. The house is located between the cliffs and surrounded by rocks and barren landscape.

The villa called Organic Modern Estate was completed in 1993, but for several years, interior designer John Vugrin has been making various modifications to the villa.

It is physically of the desert, a part of its surroundings. The strength of the hard and rugged protective shell exterior is drawn from the desert. The interior is a warm intimate space of flowing organic shapes wrapping gently around its inhabitants.

Light enters through continuous openings that separate the towering concrete panels. The textures provide the touch and feel of the desert as materials were meticulously selected from the desert. The property highlights the masculine and feminine forms that are the hallmark of organic architecture.

Now it is for sale and is on the market for $ 3 million.
