Designed by Los Angeles architect William King, 2538 Sundown is a one-of-a-kind architectural masterpiece and a LA architectural landmark. The ultimate artist retreat, the LA Domestead is easily recognizable for its geodesic dome exterior, 15 skylights, and wraparound deck which give way to 180-degree views of the San Gabriel Mountains and LA cityscape.
Spanning across three floors, the LA Domestead is located on a quarter acre of native and cultivated gardens and houses an art studio and a large heavy-duty canvas dome yurt on a wood platform. Not confined to the traditional box layout, rooms are free-flowing with curved edges and triangular windows. Each room was designed based on the times of the day and moods. The house features three distinct levels: a large skylit earth-sheltered lower level, complete with a raised living area; a timber-framed kitchen; the top level is a geodesic dome with a wrap around deck.
The rooms are determined not by function but by feeling, with a diversity of spaces suited for different moods and times of day. Some are sunny spacious open extroverted warm daytime and communally-oriented while others are introverted cool shady protected quiet and conducive to solitary retreat. Each floor is like an alternative realm, offering different ways of living, relating to others, and to the environment beyond.
The 2-bedrooms, 2 baths house has been a part of the LA contemporary art scene since 2000. It has been widely published internationally and hosted many film and photo shoots.
