From the architect. The Palms Residence is located on a narrow, urban lot in Venice, California. The home looks inward, incorporating covered decks and a small courtyard space, giving the structure a sense of privacy despite its location on an infill lot.

Comprised of 14 modules, the 2,800 sqf house includes 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a living room/dining room, a double height kitchen with an operable skylight, an office, and 700 additional square feet of outdoor living space.

The bed rooms have built-in beds and additional casework. The exterior of the home is finished with cedar siding. A series of screening techniques, including landscaping, fencing, and louvered panels provide shelter from the street while retaining the open feel of the home.

The home includes a variety of green features including, a recycled steel frame, Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS), Triple-Pane insulating glass, eco-friendly materials, Energy Star-rated appliances, and natural cooling features.

The home was produced in the MRP factory, substantially reducing the environmental impact of its construction.
