Eames House and to the Pacific Coast Highway. An enigmatically blank facade, broken only by a single recessed slot above the garage, baffles noise from the street and assures privacy. The white, light-filled interior offers a dramatic contrast. Stairs link the master suite on the lowest level in the base to the living-dining area and kitchen, which are tucked below the library off a mezzanine gallery.

The ceiling slopes sharply down and the mezzanine is slightly rotated to force the perspective. A folded steel staircase with high parapets and deep-set window openings framing treetops add to the drama. Spaces flow easily into each other and out through pocketing glass sliders that open up two sides of the living area to the wooded canyon.

The interior spaces have an expansiveness and energy that belies their modest dimensions. This is a little house that thinks big without overwhelming its neighbors. ■
