Designed by Michael Katz and Janet Korne the L41home is a sustainable energy-efficient house that truly puts the style in compact living. In fact these designers are committed to providing modern architecture at an affordable price. The best part: L41 homes can stand alone as single units or they can be configured as multi-bedroom houses or high-rise structures!
The idea here is to try and incorporate traditional Japanese architecture and natural lighting principles along with modern minimalism to create a truly one-of-a-kind structure. And we can confidently say that Antonino Cardillo has succeeded at that.
To ensure that it does not cause a detrimental effect on the panoramic natural surroundings the home uses various eco-friendly measures like a solar panel rooftop that allows it to go off grid and low energy lighting installations that save up on power.
That does not mean the indoors are bland by any means whatsoever. In fact the home itself compliments the surroundings wonderfully well and the extensive use of glass ensures that you have ample views of both the reservoir itself and some lovely landscape of the San Gabriel Mountains.
The designed by studio Bohlin Cywinski Jackson uses many natural elements which make it a part of the western oaks Douglas fir and the lush green yards that are part of this lovely creek. The 10200 square foot home seems to use mostly wood to ensure that the aesthetics of the interiors remain modern and yet ‘natural’ at the same time.
In fact these contemporary dwellings can serve as ideal housing options for first-time buyers students military personnel and many others. You have to give snaps to designers who prioritize making cutting edge housing available to all. As the L41 website states “Small is beautiful.”
In fact the house is designed to be dynamic with reflective surfaces and natural light playing off the dwelling’s many angles to create a compelling living space.
