Our Opinion:If you’re anything like us, you’ve been dreaming about this space day and night since we first gave you aglimpselast week. There’s a wealth ofhidden gems tucked into the ‘hoods and hills of this salty city, and this original-from-head-to-toe number is quickly climbing the list of our favorite spaces. Designed by renowned architect William Pereira*, in collaboration with the home’s current (andoriginal) owner, the space was made for living and livingwell. As was custom the year the home was built, 1969, this house was designed for the day-to-day, as well as for throwing a fabulous party. Everything from the art that filled it, to the (then very futuristic) sound system, to the cutting-edge furniture (think: first year Eames chair and ottoman), to the double-sided fireplace, was an intentional addition to celebrate all things “the good life”.One is first greeted by the original (in every sense of the word) bark-paneled door. Upon entering, the wall of glass across the way immediately reconnects you with the exterior, and the brick outside spills inside for a continuous, fluid feel. Parquet floors, floor-to-ceiling windows, and the aforementioned brick guide you from room to breathtaking room. A few choice pieces: the stunning wall of windows, which looks into the back yard, and the natural cork paper-paneled wall. The magnum opus is surely the hearth, which issomuch more than a hearth. The majority of the volume in this home is centered around a living space that isbeyondto die for. This is the room where all lines, elements, and materials cross–stone, concrete, glass, volume, and light meet. The hall’s dropped soffit serves to accentuate the taller ceilings here. The stunning, double-sided fireplace undeniably anchors the home, andjust like with all other planes in this placeif you follow the stone, it leads you from one room to the next. In this case, it leads you past the study into the main suite, where you’ll find the fireplace’s second face. The space is incredibly diverse, yet sublimely cohesive. The design both within and without this home is unquestionably one of a kind, and of course, it would be remiss not to mention that this home is seated squarely on 1.65 acres. This is a rare bit of architectural history that makes us not only love where we live, but beam with pride for it as well. It’s opportunity, and it’s knockin’. Won’t you get the door?
*We requested a few notes on Pereira’swork from architect, author, lecturer, and preservationist, Alan Hess:”William Pereira is famous for the major museums (LACMA), airports, skyscrapers, campuses, and city plans he designed to reshape the West in the second half of the twentieth century. He designed few residences, but those he did were for extraordinary clients such as tire magnate Leonard Firestone, Los Angeles Times publisher Otis Chandler, and his own house in Los Angeles. The house he designed in Salt Lake City is contemporary with the Firestone estate in Palm Springs, and exhibits similar confident lines and flowing spaces, inside and out. The Firestone house was recently restored by new owners as part of the tremendous revival of interest in Palm Springs’ excellent midcentury Modern architecture. Pereira’s Salt Lake City house holds the same potential to enjoy a unique piece of architecture.”We think it’s imperative this spot be preserved, and we wholeheartedly commend those folks that champion for thepreservation of amazing spacesin our city (it’s for this reason the current owners elected our COLLECTIVE hand to find the next folks to live their lives here).
