Designed by Schmidt Arquitectos Asociados, the Pigeon Loft is the perfect spot to take in views of the Pacific Ocean through an all-glass exterior. Its minimalist-but-rustic feel comes from the house's unlikely origins: most of its construction materials were leftover from the architects' previous projects. Spare windows and doors from an office became its windows and balcony doors; wood structure discarded from another building became its support posts. Inspired by Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House, the Pigeon Loft features one expansive living and sleeping space; the bathroom and kitchen are hidden behind bookshelves at the house's rear.
