After two years of construction, Dan Brunn Architecture has unveiled its Los Angeles-based “Bridge House” that was built over a natural stream in order to preserve the environment. Principal architect Dan Brunn was inspired by the motor court of the Vanderbilt family’s former waterfront property in Newport, Rhode Island, resulting in a “demonstration of innovative systems and forward thinking” throughout the minimalistic space.

Standing at 4,500 square feet, the Bride House features an elongated structure that stretches 210 feet across, straddling the brook below it. The space is divided into “public” and “private” sections that encompass several rooms and entertainments areas: living room, dining room, kitchen, den, three bedrooms, terrace powder room, pool house and more. A spatial, geometric layout and elevated interior touches accentuate the contemporary aesthetic, with details like open skylights, modern wood cabinets, quartz countertops and a “living wall” of plants adding to the ambiance.

2019 isn’t over yet, but it’s definitely been a defining year for us. At the launch of Bridge House, we paired up with @bmwusa for the unveiling of the Vision M Next, which had me thinking about my childhood. When I moved to the States, not speaking English, I sat in the yard with a friend, we drew cars. It was this one particular BMW, over and over. That was our language. He spoke Japanese, I spoke Hebrew, but design brought us together. A dream I’d say. At the time, the thought of driving a BMW sounded completely foreign, and today I’m proud to be working alongside one of my favorite companies. Truly means the world to me.? .

Brunn also took an eco-friendly approach with the design by aiming to create a net-zero home. Elements such as lightweight recyclable steel from BONE Structure and a water filtration system by Pentair bring in eco-friendly touches. Meanwhile, the architect collaborated with Western Window Systems on state-of-the-art glass that creates thermal resistance and helps offer energy efficiency.

Bridge House will host various events with brands such as BMW, Yamaha and Bosch. It will also showcase revolving art exhibits, including a temporary show during Frieze Los Angeles. The first installation on display at the home, “Mother Nature and the Sound of her Feminine Dream,” hails from artist Tasya van Ree whose “dreamlike imagery” intends to reflect a message of “love, self empowerment and a deeper understanding of the heart and the invisible patterns of its cosmic foundation.”

“The idea is to do something extraordinary with ordinary means,” stated Brunn.”Good architecture is temporal and evolves as needs and technologies change.”

Elsewhere in design, MUJI has unveiled its latest tiny home, Yō no Ie House.
