About the Movie

Travelling along the Pacific North West coastline from LA to Vancouver, the film showcases the pioneers of West Coast Modernist Architecture, and the homes that have become their legacies. This relaxed journey takes us across three generations of Modernist architecture, all finding beauty in their own times, and all taking us back to the basics of true living. A sense of place, light and a deep connection to the earth. Interviewed in Coast Modern are some of the most respected names in architecture, including James Steele, Ray Kappe, Hernik Bull, Pierluigi Serraino, John Cava, Barbara Bestor and Dion Neutra, son of the legendary Richard Neutra.

Customer Reviews

Coast modern brilliance

Stunning photography. Great soundtrack. Really enjoyed the film and it's perspective on this realm of design.

Breathtakingly well done.

What an absolutely spectacular film - it's quickly become a favourite! Like any place, the Pacific North-West has some really uninspired architecture, but Coast Modern showcases the hidden gems and really does justice to modern design. Now if I could only teleport myself into those houses...

Dances from uplifting homage to sad lament.

A stunning achievement! To say this is a unique portrait of Pacific Northwest residential architecture would be missing the point. The film also takes us on a lyrical journey of its own, through the narrative pace, atmospheric music and floating camerawork. Best of all, we hear from influencers and appreciators on what Modernism's legacy can teach us going forward.

Anyone who has ever pondered the space they live in or indeed has ever lived in a house, should experience Coast Modern.
