Psychedelic House Design: Flaming Lips by Fitzsimmons Architects

Fitzsimmons Architects has created an unique project of psychedelic residence, located in an eclectic neighborhood of Oklahoma City . Called Flaming Lips, this masterpiece is as free thinking and boundary pushing as the art and music of its owners, Michelle Martin-Coyne, a photographer and artist, and her husband Wayne. The project includes the partial refinishing of the main house, and the renovation of an existing garage and storage space into a large family room, and a new master suite including the master bath “dragon egg”. The existing low roof structure of the storage space was removed, making room for a new “fractured plain” roof that floats above a ribbon of clerestory windows. This angular roof cantilevers away from the house off a thin exoskeleton of steel, shading the patio below while still allowing indirect daylight to flood the living space. This connection to the outdoors is further emphasized by a wall of sliding glass doors that open to the outdoor patio and expansive yard. Chaotic, sometimes psychedelic design makes the house unique and not similar to anything else. Via
