Designed in 1938, the Ralph Jester House (named after its would be owner, Hollywood costume designer Ralph Jester) would have been located in Santa Monica, Calif.

"The layout consisted of a series of self-contained, cylindrical rooms clad in plywood, a series of drums set beneath a square slab roof. The interior was, in effect, a large indoor patio, requiring one to walk outside to travel between rooms, or access the large swimming pool, which was designed to overflow into a ravine below and provide a 270-degree view of the Pacific Ocean, a man-made waterfall reflecting out towards the sea," says the Curbed article.
