La Jolla Guest House featured in Wallpaper* list of Minimalist Homes that Inspire Calm
These examples of minimalist architecture place life in the foreground – clutter is demoted; joy promoted. Elevating interiors to places of peace, these buildings created by design pioneers help us to trace a recent history of minimalism in home design.
The La Jolla Guest House is a low scale, single-storey structure that references modernist gems, such as the iconic Case Study Houses of the 1950s and 1960s found in California. The guesthouse, which also serves as a pool house, is part of the grounds of a larger spec residence. Elegant and small-scale, the building features strong geometry and clean, minimalist lines, which make for suitably subtle drama and confident architecture.
