Dan Brunn is a recognized architect based in Los Angeles, who redesigned the fromer Janss Family residence, which is 3,600 square foot and it’s remembered as one of the pieces that give form to the contemporary art scene from the 1970s and 1980s. Its aesthetic has a tendency towards minimalism and the incorporation of Frank Gehry’s influence on its design.

The outdoor spaces that give life to the entire first floor were designed not only for their domestic needs, but to achieve a balance between the work and the exhibition space of James Jean, the artist. The interior spaces are around a large rectangular skylight. The new windows provide additional natural light to the kitchen and living areas. Brunn created a dynamic wavy staircase wall as a nod to the architectural forms and the palette of materials that Gehry used at that time.

A copper entrance leads to a hallway that introduces dominant themes of white vertical planes and a concrete ground plane. The main sculpture of the house emerges in the form of an expressive staircase. Starting with a walnut wall that leads from the entrance to the living room. The changing shapes and angles are in homage to Gehry, as well as to Jean, who presents fluid arabesques in his work. Handmade, the walnut staircase attenuates the verticality of the space, inviting one to climb the stairs. The dynamic shape of the swoosh captures the light throughout the day, accentuating the golden tones of the wood. Airplanes continue to change as one moves down the stairs, creating varied experiences that go up and down.

Minimal furnishings define “rooms” within the open plan and provide comfortable seating, yet allow art to remain center stage. A charcoal‐colored area rug demarcates the conversation area bound by an Italian sofa with integral shelves in the arms and two black‐and‐tan leather sling chairs designed by Jean Prouvé in 1930. The reclaimed timber coffee table is custom made for the space with traditional Japanese joinery. It is a fitting counterpart to the fine and intricate lines found in a massive canvas by Jean that overlooks the living area.

The recovered wooden coffee table is made to measure for the space with traditional Japanese carpentry. It is an appropriate counterpart to the fine and intricate lines found in a huge canvas of Jean that overlooks the living room. In the furniture we find the minimalizmo defining "rooms" within the open plan and providing comfortable seats, without limiting the art so that it remains the center of attention. A charcoal rug delimits the conversation area along with an Italian sofa with integral shelves on the arms and two black and bronze leather sling designed by Jean Prouvé in 1930.
