One of the more intriguing houses I’ve seen recently is this very starkly minimal remodel, an entirely white house in Hollywood, California from XTEN Architecture.

It’s almost enthralling in its complete dedication to the very purest of minimal design aesthetics, really pushing the limits of livability.

But mostly, the unusual house succeeds in translating the ubiquitous sunshine of Southern California into just pure white light.

The remodel is of a 1960’s era home in Hollywood, situated on the side of the canyon of a steep and sought-after hillside location, just below the famous “Hollywood” sign.

Such an unremittingly stark white would be a respite from color for someone with a job in design – acting almost like a like a palate cleanser between courses.

In fact, at least in the living room, some fuchsia seating offers some respite.

Since black covers part of the exterior, at night the effect created is that of a lantern of pure white light set against the shadow of the hillside at night. Interesting.
