Gizmodo today posted exclusive plans for Steve Jobs’ new house. In a quote from the article by architect Christopher Travis on the simplicity of the house:
“This kind of thing only happens when the client gives the architect specific instructions to be sparse and utilitarian,” Travis adds. “The natural tendency is to go ‘McMansion.’ I would say this plan is a direct result of a specific requirement by Jobs to make it plain and simple…It’s almost Zen, with a vaguely oriental simplicity to it.”
I’ll say that it doesn’t surprise me at all. Simple, thoughtful, beautiful design. Just like the products his company builds.
