LaBanc House – 566 sq/ft

So this is a rather interesting story, the owner sleeps on a yoga mat, the site, a former meth lab.  I don’t have a clue why you would sleep on concrete with only a yoga mat, but that’s what the owner wanted when he described what he was looking for:

Imagine for a moment you’re an architect. You’ve got a client – a really nice guy – who tells you he sleeps on a yoga mat on the floor. And he wants a home that is so stripped of ornament that, to some eyes, it will seem stark and cold. Also, he’s a very private person who wants a place of quiet solitude, but located in a dense urban neighborhood.

Interesting proposition for an architect, but I really like the results!


  1. dave leblanc is the author and photographer for the story; Andrew Reeves is the architect; Patrick Flynn is the client. calling it the LaBanc house is just so wrong.

    no need to publish this

  2. I don’t find this devoid of anything. I think it looks like a wonderful house except for the gray color. Natural woods indoors would have looked nicer.

  3. I’m drooling a little bit. I think I’m in love. Its perfect in everyway to me. I would need a little thicker mat to sleep on 🙂

  4. I wonder what the bathroom looks like.

  5. It’s great! The starkness of the decor actually makes the place look enormous.
