The Wild Lilac House Is An Exercise In Intentional Isolation

California’s diverse ecosystems are among the world’s finest, and with nine expansive national parks in its repertoire, it’s no surprise that the state harbors such beautiful, secluded sites. This was especially convenient for Walker Workshop, a Los Angeles-based architecture firm who took to San Bernardino’s lush countryside to create the immaculate Wild Lilac House.

Wild Lilac runs east to west along one of the range’s mesmerizing mountainsides, gifting its denizens with a unique, indoor/outdoor living area for quiet contemplation. Within, a collection of angular concrete dividers create the home’s programmatic zones, helping to dissuade the impedance of the sun at impressionable times of the day. But the space’s elaborate layout does more than keep its occupants cool during the state’s mild summers; it also helps to demarcate the different areas of the dwelling. A three-car garage, three bedrooms, and four baths blend seamlessly, thanks to the home’s adaptive, open-air amenities. Outside, a collection of sliding glass doors, length-running windows, and subtle water features serve to accent Lilac’s modest lap pool, spa, and Baja shelf.
