The Wave House by Mario Romano

Architecture studio Mario Romano designed The Wave House, a contemporary residence with dynamic architectural features located in Venice, California.



“Constructing the organically-shaped facades of The Wave House required trust in the power of calculus and the development of an entirely new architectural vernacular as Romano set forth to manifest his vision for the home.” –  Mario Romano






“The home’s aluminum skin is skillfully orchestrated, emulating the beauty of nature’s own eloquent geometry. Appearing as if one massive undulating facade, the painted aluminum flows from over two stories high until finally arriving to touch the ground in one single flow.
There are over 300 unique and custom cut aluminum pieces within this skin, organized to form one massive architectural movement. Unable to use traditional architectural jargon like roof, wall and eaves, Romano and his design team created new words to describe what they were creating, often embodying the forms one finds in nature — fins, icing, river lines and feathers.” – Mario Romano
