A Point In Design


Trips to Famous Buildings – The Twilight Houses

To commemorate the launch of the latest Twilight franchise film, I though that I would create a post that showcases the Cullen houses featured in the films. In my mind the architecture was the most interesting thing about the series. The books were a high school English teacher’s worst nightmare; Stephanie Meyer never described the characters beyond the meaningless adjective ‘interesting’ and the author spent more time describing Bella’s truck then the protagonist herself. The acting in the films was also uninspired and perhaps unintentionally funny. For me the Twilight franchise highlights were this shot and the accompanying musical performance. I laughed out loud when I saw both of these classic moments.

The Icy Gaze

Enough about the movies, back to architecture. The film makers used several houses for the Cullen residence. The first house featured in the movie Twilight was the Hoke House designed by Skylab architect Jeff Kovel for a Nike executive.

The second Cullen house featured in New Moon is located in Vancouver and is currently for sale for just under $3 million dollars. It was designed by architect Brian Hemingway.

Below are more photos from both houses.
