Entry Description

Squashed between regional and neighborhood commercial, on a 140-foot long single-family sliver; the beach house is standing as an inspiration among a single row of one-story 20s-30s single family houses. The first work-of-art in its neighborhood, the project elevated a dusky 1918 Venice house into a delight of beachy air, sunshine and splashing water. Building orients towards the south, inviting natural sunlight through all day, to offset the continual ocean breeze of Venice Beach. The 2nd-story balcony serves as a shading device eliminating harsh summer sunlight and inviting winter sunlight.
