Wayne Coyne’s ‘Phantasmagorical’ New House

While we don’t normally offer a lot of architecture coverage, this story seemed too good/bizarre to pass up: the firm Fitzsimmons Architects recently posted photos of Wayne Coyne’s new Oklahoma City home.  Coyne, who is the frontman of ‘space rock’ band The Flaming Lips, is a strange and imaginative dude, and his new house certainly embodies those characteristics.  According to Pitchfork, while the house “looks like a simple brick house from the outside,” … it “turns pretty phantasmagorical once you get inside.” 

Indeed, as you’ll see in the photos, the house is anything but typical.  Each room seems to follow a separate theme or idea, varying in their decor and use of space.  The study is sparse and dominated by a massive, industrial-looking ceiling fan.  The bedroom is centered by a fireplace that descends from the ceiling, and the bathroom’s curved adobe walls evoke Uncle Owen’s pad on Tatooine.
