A few months ago I wrote a post about the movie Twilight. Since then I learned more about Edward Cullen’s contemporary house.
According to architect Jeff Kovel of Skylab Architecture, it was built as a spec house and bought by the director of footwear design at Nike, John Hoke: “Following a cover story in a northwest architecture publication, the Hokes were approached by a film location scout, a little film called Twilight.”
Twilight producers thought it was the perfect setting for the Cullen family of cool, “we-glitter-in-the-sun and look-like-supermodels” vampires–although many fans have complained that it didn’t look anything like the old white Victorian described in the novel.
