Design: Gehry Partners
Address: 1002 22nd Street, Santa Monica, Los Angeles, CA, United States
The Gehry Residence is Frank Gehry’s own house. It was originally an extension, designed by Gehry around an existing house. Now the architect is world-famous and has numerous major buildings in most western countries, but this is where it all began.
The house is experimental. It was designed in the fleetingly-very-popular Deconstructivist style though it is also slightly adhoc and can’t properly be pigeonholed into any architectural genre. It uses assembled industrial elements such as chain link fences and corrugated steel.
The Gehry Residence is located in Santa Monica, California.
In 1977, Frank and Berta Gehry bought a pink 1920s bungalow.
In 1978 he partially enveloped the house with a new exterior. In 1991 Gehry once more grew the house to help accommodate his growing family.
Gehry Partners, LLP was founded in 1962 by the Canadian architect, and located in Los Angeles, California. Frank went on to win the most significant architectural awards globally including the Pritzker Prize, AIA Gold Medals, RIBA Gold Medal and the Praemium Imperiale.
His buildings have received over 100 national and regional A.I.A. awards. Key works include the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao in Bilbao, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the Jay Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park in Chicago.
