Organic architecture

Organic architecture is a philosophy of architecture which promotes harmony between human habitation and the natural world through design approaches so sympathetic and well integrated with its site that buildings, furnishings, and surroundings become part of a unified, interrelated composition.

Sheats Goldstein Residence

The Sheats Goldstein Residence is an example of house designed accordingly to the principles of organic architecture. The Goldstein Residence was built between 1961 and 1963 by John Lautner in Beverly Crest, Los Angeles not far from the Beverly Hills border. The building was conceived from the inside out and built into the sandstone ledge of the hillside; a cave-like dwelling that opens to embrace nature and view.
