Radius House is a context-specific, architectural residence and the first ground-up residential project by the Los Angeles-based design studio, Pentagon. This 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom residence features sculptural interior spaces and articulated facades, giving it a distinctive presence in an area recognized for expressive residential designs. Crisp angles, curved surfaces, and large picture windows throughout the two-story structure create unique moments of dialogue between indoor and outdoor. The home wraps a central courtyard on three sides. Lush landscaping by Sarita Jaccard Design surrounds a raised basalt slab containing a pool, sundeck, and fireplace, conceptualized as a "bento box" of outdoor activities. Inside, a cantilevered grand stair encircles a central atrium illuminated from above by a large oculus walkable skylight embedded in the outdoor roof terrace. The interior of the residence introduces finish selections that express visual contrast, human scale, and refined materials. The walnut cladding of the curved shelving in the entry continues through the kitchen to the grand stair and central atrium, wrapping upwards to the roof. The venetian plaster walls give the residence a luminous continuity and a handcrafted quality throughout. The radiant heated concrete of the first floor, and European white oak wood on the second floor, bring a feeling of comfort and warmth to both common and private spaces.
