The Hollywood Hand House (5 pics)


A woman's hand juts of the earth holding an exposed glass house. What exactly could this mean?

Architect Andreas Angelidakis created this crazy cool concept. When the rain falls, the giant hand appears to be coming out of the water, elegantly holding the glass house.

"The Glass box represents the moment when the celebrity exposes herself to the paparazzi," Angelidakis says. It "sits on the concrete platform as a forgotten piece of infrastructure." The staircase leads down into the cave section of the house where a normal life is taking place. "Behind the boulders are doors to excavated bedrooms, places of total isolation and darkness."

Ultimately, the house shows us the dichotomy of Hollywood. "The residents enjoy total privacy together with total exposure, a day on the beach and a night in the cave, the entire city of Los Angeles abbreviated like a Twitter post inside the limits of their property."

How strangely fascinating.

  • awful, tacky, and what is it with architects trying to justify bad design by "poetic" descriptions? Just speak in plain English, it doesn't make a bad design better
