It’s not often that you catch wind of a self-taught architect, let alone, one with a history of lauded designs that have served as the inspirational force behind some of the world’s most mesmerizing projects, including the Sydney Opera House. Although the “Wave” might be his most iconic dwelling, Harry Gesner’s California-based “Triangle” home is equally as interesting, thanks to its retrospective, science-fiction-inspired layout.
As you enter the Tarzana property’s futuristic grounds through the front gate, you’re met with spectacular views of a monolithic carport, a triangular living quarter, and large, inviting windows. Nestled within the hillside, the 5,278-square-foot home remains isolated from onlookers, providing serene privacy, intimacy with nature, and a relaxing atmosphere that feels far-reserved when compared to the bustling cityscape of Los Angeles. Inside, a large open floor plan and sunken living area play host to a bevy of modern furniture pieces, appliances, and socialization areas. Head further inward, and you’ll find four fully-equipped bedrooms, six bathrooms, a private balcony, and an expansive kitchen outfitted with lightened wood and white cabinetry. If by chance you’re feeling a bit confined indoors, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the home’s large backyard area, which boasts a concrete-framed pool, guest house, and fire pit.
