Strick House by Legendary Brazilian Modernist Oscar Niemeyer

Oscar Niemeyer is a name famous for designing the architect of the capital city Brasília. Hailing from Brazil, his only major work in the US was the Strick House which he designed for film director Joseph Strick and his wife in 1963. Not many recognize this Santa Monica house as his genius because Oscar was banned in the US for his leftist associations.

The house that adores a T-shape plan was deprived of fame until Michael and Gabrielle Boyd bought the famous house. The single-story dwelling gets a flat roof and a row of tall narrow exposed rafters cover the entire roof in a serrated pattern. The house is sheathed using glass, brick, and stucco.

It’s a very beautiful and modern house. It has a very nice design, both in terms of exterior design as well as of interior décor. Every room as specific look, a different atmosphere and décor. But what they all share in common is the modern and simple style. It’s nice how all the materials and patterns work together and form a complete and equilibrated image. And all the different colors also work together to form complementary and colorful images.  It’s a beautiful design, modern and elegant and also stylish.

The location is great and the views you can enjoy from there are amazing. This is a perfect home for a family. It has everything you need and more.
