NOTES: The design for this large single-story residence located on a prominent hillside site with dramatic views was commissioned by VLife magazine to illustrate an article about "the movie mogul of the future." The house is composed of four parallel rectangular bars, each dedicated to a particular aspect of the occupant's life: there is an office bar for business-related matters; an entertainment bar for hosting social events and featuring a screening room with live digital feed, wet-bar, and lounge; a recreation bar with both an indoor gym and an immersive virtual reality simulation platform; and a living bar that contains the private kitchen, living, and sleeping areas of the house.
