Every once in a while, I'll stumble upon a beautiful house that I fall in love with. Modern design, clean lines, something livable and inspiring. Clive Wilkinson is a man who knows my heart! His 3,300 square foot 3-bedroom house near Melrose was built so that people could move around, interact with one another, and go in and out of the house with ease.
I first saw Clive's work while working at MTV. I went to TBWA/Chiat/Day's building one time with my boss and my jaw literally dropped when I went. TBWA/Chiat/Day is a creative agency for companies like Apple, Infiniti and Nissan. You walk in and you find a 120,000-square-foot warehouse renovation encompassing a "city" of stacked offices resembling shipping crates. There are surfboards for conference tables, a park to shoot some hoops, and an espresso area!
Clive recently redesigned Google's headquarters in Silicon Valley for a cool $15 million and he's now commissioned to work on BBC's offices.
And now pics of his house:
Beautiful work, Clive!
