Residence Mar Vista, CA
The project consist of a second floor addition to an existing one story single family home and a new two car garage with an art studio above. The house is located in the Mar Vista neighborhood, a couple of miles east of the Pacific Ocean. Mar Vista’s hilly terrain and proximity to the ocean offers sweeping city views and cool ocean breezes.
The design strategy was to edit the existing ground floor structure of walls to allow for an unobstructed flow of the spaces and to add natural light. The second floor master suite includes a roof terrace to take full advantage of mountain views and prevailing winds from the Pacific Ocean.
The exterior materials are stucco, redwood and bonderized steel siding to reinforce the relationship to the neighboring homes. The interior finishes are plaster, slate tile and maple wood floors.
