Houzz TV: Love and Geometry in an Inspired One-of-a-Kind House

“It’s difficult to describe our home,” Margo Seymour says. Nestled among the trees in the city of Los Altos, California, about 40 miles south of San Francisco, Margo and Dale Seymour’s house has a light-filled volume of geometric glass, acrylic, steel and wood that projects into the landscape. “It’s a house that lights up children’s eyes,” Margo says. Experience it yourself in a video that guides you through and around this one-of-a-kind residence.

Incredible design. I love it when people come up with something unique AND fabulous.

And the Exolite, that sounds like something that I could do something with. I will definitely be checking it out. :-)

Stunning visual house! I love the flow of it and the touches of beautiful collections reflecting their connection to nature and children. They have kept their minds open and their hearts alive with fantastical collections. I will watch the video every so often just to lift my spirits!

Geez. . . I was reminded of Buckminster Fuller and the Paradigm Shift; I'm speechless and with no other thoughts to share.

While brilliantly artistic, it looks impossible to keep clean. Washing windows from the inside even looks dangerous.

How do you clean the windows? There are a lot of trees...

It's different, which is refreshing for this site. The best part to me is the non-linear wood shake siding - love that!

It's really amazing how the architect and the owners collaborated happily and put all those ideas together!! May I know the total land area? If I want to replicate the design, will there be no "copyright infringement" sort of thing? If none, can you help me please secure (with a fee, of course) a working drawing and bill of quantities for these? Thanks much. I live in Asia, and I have not seen anything like this ! Beautiful as it is breathtaking!! Really awesome! Kudos to all!!

I love to see people's imagination at work to produce something beautiful, functional and unique. Congratulations! You did this in spades and the result is fantastic. Only one question: how to you keep all the carpeting and all the nooks and crannies clean?

Highly imaginative. If I had a big do-over I would have been an architect. Still I don't think I could have ever come up with this. Beautiful.

"No one needs to live in a box." What a powerful quote! The approach of the couple, collecting and sculpting their favorite things, adds vibrancy to an already stunning remodel. This is an incredible display of fine design. We're definitely going to share this within our network. Great story about great people!

Wow, it is like a modern museum, the Sydney Opera House meets the old Tyringham Art Gallery! Have to look up this architect's other work. I am completely amazed at how inventive this is with such unique use of materials!

Here are some pictures of the Tyringham Art Gallery (it was in Western Massachusetts, but is now a wedding chapel) - it had art from floor to ceiling on every surface inside and an amazing sculpture garden that followed a little stream in the back yard, too.

This home is definitely not my normal style but I absolutely love it, what a great job, must be so inspiring for both of them to live in such a place and the sculptures he's created seem to prove that
