Stand on a valley in Southern California, the Four Eyes House is a weekend desert residence consist of four “sleeping towers” which are oriented towards four-spatio viewing experiences.
Each tower contains a compact top-floor bedroom with a unique aperture directed towards the view, these bedrooms can only be reached by a vertical ladder from the ground-floor common spaces.
Inspiration from architect:
The sensations of sleeping and waking are thus inflected by the building’s foregrounding of intensified onsite experiential events. By sleeping in a room elevated off the ground and open to the stars, one might inhabit a deep pocket of silence for a few moments, and perhaps even perceive the movement of the Earth, as it slowly rotates beneath the stars.
