SpacePlace of the Week – quirky form and function in LA

There is something delightful about this little office pob.  It has a great sense of place. Despite its quirky character you just know there is a reason why the designer has chosen to place it on a post out the front of the house. It speaks of its context.  The house is in Venice Beach, California and is an early design by Frank Gehry. The house is set back from the beach and the garden office pokes its head forward of the building line allowing a view right down the beach.  There was a time when form followed function, even in Frank Gehry’s work.
