A House with a Massive, Undulating, Wave-Like Exterior

A House with a Massive, Undulating, Wave-Like Exterior

LA-based architect Mario Romano designed a house in Venice, California, that’s unlike any other. The Wave House spans 5,700 square feet with five bedrooms and four bathrooms featuring a series of organically designed floors and walls that are just as visually intriguing as its undulating exterior. Romano’s art background is clearly displayed from the moment your eyes feast on the wave-like, white aluminum facade that mimics an ocean swell.

Utilizing CNC technology and customized digital tools, Romano crafted a skin out of hundreds of unique pieces that were attached to a complex metal structure to give its flowing form. Horizontal stained cedar boards under the soffit perfectly contrast the sleek aluminum panels.

On the far wall of the courtyard, overlapping “feathers” were installed at a 30 degree pitch so air could circulate better to keep the house drier and cooler.

The house wraps around a large outdoor space with a pool helping to merge indoor/outdoor living.

The wall and flooring systems that Romano designed are antibacterial and waterproof making them ideal for people with children. The geometric patterns bring a level of high-tech art to various spaces in the house.
