Text description provided by the architects. 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.

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.
