A Chapter of the American Institute of Architects
Cor-ten Cottage(Barbara Callas, AIA - Callas Architects, Inc.)
Streets snake through thePalisades, populated by60
s shacks and mansions.10 years ago, architectBarbara Callas bought ashack to get her twintoddlers Westside air andcontinue the experimentthat is her architecture.The key issue in the twostage course of therenovation was thechallenge presented bynarrow property lines,shallow frontage, and thecode requirements that restricted adding a third story which was the main motivation wasto add a master with a peek of the pacific.The architect
s work is guided by a
Minimalist Mind and Humanist Hand.
The projectbecame continuing research in materiality. The resultant shell is rusting corrugated Cor-Ten steel. It requires no paint and no maintenance. The three levels of the residenceare open each to the garden or the sea and separated from one another. The living level- previously limited in fenestration - is now a wall of transparency facing northern lightthat views a terraced garden of pepper, palm, bamboo and agave. The baths are bothpractical and playful: the girl
s sports a large rain shower head in a space of pristinesubway tile where the Labradoodle gets her weekly wash. The powder room issurrounded in sumptuous chocolate bronze tile, its glass enclosed shower is framed floorto ceiling by a slim south facing semi-opaque glass edge where the shadows of palmfronds dance.Callas and her husband Paul Gurian wanted their 600 square-foot master to be apermanent weekend getaway. His and her
chairs sit upon a tight lama pilecarpet which hosts the B&B bed, and side tables that face the ubiquitous flat screen.The bath is an oversized wet room with his and her showers. The fixtures areintersected by open walls of glass that illuminate the fabric of the mosaic tile. Light, thesignature of modern design, here as in other geometries of the home heightens theparadox of being open to the world while tucked away in the primal privacy of this cor-tencottage.
