Home of the Week: A postmodern party in Sierra Madre

Home of the Week | Sierra Madre

Walls of glass blocks and corrugated metal finishes lend a polished look to the post-modern home in Sierra Madre. The four-bedroom home opens to a vaulted entry with a towering waterfall feature. A pair of rooftop decks, an outdoor living room and landscaping are among the exterior details.


If the ’80s were a home, the decade of feathered bangs, boomboxes and MTV programming might look something like this residence in Sierra Madre.

Vivid purple accents and lighting stand out against silvery notes of corrugated steel for a postmodern look. Towering walls of glass blocks invite light while underscoring a vaulted entry and three-story water feature.
