Home of the Day: La Jolla’s legendary Lotus House
Once featured on HGTV’s “Extreme Homes” series, the Lotus House by organic modern architect Kendrick Bangs Kellogg is a sinuous study of undulating wood roof trusses, sculptural poured-form concrete and geometric tile.
A three-story, helical glass center staircase invites awe as do walls of glass framing panoramic views of the Pacific. It’s dramatic, sculptural and outrageously one-of-a-kind.
