Los Angeles glass home, Orum Residence, designed to look like an airplane propeller is soon to be on the market for $56 million.
The property, also known as the “Orum Residence” was designed by Zoltan Pali, a Los Angeles architect. Pali notes, “Perched atop a Bel Air hilltop, Orum is a 17,000-square-foot home designed to ‘float’ above its environs—unnoticed.”
The lavish amenities include: a wine room that fits 1,000 bottles, a cedar sauna, a gym, home theater, outdoor kitchen, two outdoor fire pits and an LED-lit pool and spa.
Pali’s inspiration in designing the residence was to meld it into its surroundings. The three-story structure is constructed in the shape of a three-winged propeller, and wrapped in four types of glass (reflective, translucent, opaque, and clear).
The ground floor provides communal spaces for gathering, while the top floor is dedicated to the home’s bedrooms. The basement level was created to hold a theatre, gym, spa, and staff and guest rooms.
Although this space is expansive, there’s a feeling of intimacy since each wing is transparent and joined by the glass staircase, giving all areas of the home 270-degree views.
Thai developer Duangpatra Bodiratnangkura who spent four years on the project said, “I want to deliver homes that are peculiar and anomalous in terms of architecture, I’m thinking outside of the box—literally.”
