Actor Matthew Fox has put his home in Central Oregon up for sale. The ‘Lost’ alumnus and co-star of ‘Bone Tomahawk’ is asking $4 million for the residence; he picked up the property for $1.5 million, as ‘Lost’ crested in popularity in 2008.
The home is a custom build, the product of an unnamed Italian architect, local builder Timberline, and area design firm Pique. The result of the collaboration is called ‘Parallelepipedo,’ and the architectural design, materials, and ethical foundation of the house suggest balance and interplay.
The home is extremely ecologically sensitive, which is one layer of context for the name. Passive and active solar comprise significant power sources for the property, and the harvesting of sunlight—and shading the home from it—reflect the larger duality within the design by suggesting equipoise out of the diurnal cycle. The heat is ground source, and the home design uses a good deal of stone. It’s also tiled with slate, which looks terrific.
The interiors follow through in kind, with large bright spaces, exposed ductwork, steel, and concrete express the living spaces as conscientious and philosophically realized—the use of industrial materials and tropes, in this case, is more functional than vain. So the house manages to establish and sustain a fundamental sense of authenticity which lends a great deal of credence to the loft-like sense of scale.
The property extends to over ten acres, which gives the house a little room to get pleasantly lost in.
Fox portrayed the protagonist in ABC’s 2000’s hit show ‘Lost’ until its surviving characters were found. He had a starring role in action director S. Craig Zahler’s 2015 film ‘Bone Tomahawk.’
