Venice Residence

Dworsky Architecture as Architects

This residence is intended to create a spacious living environment for a family on a small but prominent corner lot, and a timeless architectural addition to the architecturally eclectic beach community of Venice, California. The open loft-like interior connects to a private yard through large sliding glass doors and is achieved by: (1) treating the entry/dining/kitchen/lounge areas as a single space, (2) developing the private garden as a “green” room, and (3) creating a direct line of site from the front entry through to the rear of the private garden. Each zone within the common areas of the home has been articulated by differing floor levels, finish materials, ceiling & lighting configuration, and window scale & orientation. Outdoor entertainment and lounge options are extended by a large rooftop deck affording views to the surrounding beach community.

 

The focal double height volume encompasses the entry and dining areas and allows natural light deeper into the center of the house. The second level walkway, home office and the family/media room overlook this double height volume. Privacy on this prominent corner lot is maintained by surrounding solid fences, carefully placed landscaping and a raised concrete planter at the entry. The exterior is articulated with a base of cedar siding supporting an upper mass of smooth integrally colored plaster. The second floor windows lie primarily within a horizontal band which is further articulated by corrugated metal panels encircling the perimeter.

 

Material Used :
1. Cedar Siding (rain screen) by Wood Haven Inc.
2. Corrugated Metal Siding by Steellogic LLC
3. Sliding Glass Doors by Fleetwood Windows & Doors
4. Windows by All Weather Architectural Aluminum
5. Prefinished Oak Wood Flooring by Du Chateau Floors
6. Light fixtures from Premiere LED Store (Los Angeles)
7. Kitchen Appliances by Thermador
