Designed by Thornton Ladd, architect of such local landmarks as the Norton Simon Museum, the eye-catching Bridge House receives its name from its location adjacent to the Colorado Street Bridge and 134 Freeway. Blending glass, wood and concrete materials, the modernist home is distinguished by bright hues, brick flooring and a dramatic two-story entry with a floating staircase. Outdoors, stone pathways lead to various patios, a running stream and a pool with a waterfall feature, set among a blanket of tall bamboo.
