Text description provided by the architects. This project consists of a two-story, 5,000-square-foot single family residence and guest house on a 12,000-square-foot property in Venice, California.  The property is large for this section of Los Angeles, making it nicely sized for a young family of four.

 The first floor plan is in the shape of a long bar and has an open arrangement of public rooms all looking on to the western half of the property.  The living room is a double-height space.  The exterior areas are comprised of a front garden, a private garden, an exterior covered area and various concrete deck areas, a sports court, and a swimming pool and spa.
