Santa Monica, CA
Custom Single Family
Photography: Tom Bonner
This exceedingly small lot in a commercial district of Santa Monica has only enough ground space for parking of two cars, making it only viable for a single-family residence. All of the building’s functions would need to be arranged vertically.
The program stacks with parking on the ground floor, bedroom level, and then living level above that, with an office mezzanine. From the living level and above, the exterior walls step back to afford better views, and provide for an outdoor space while maintaining some privacy and disconnect from the busy street below.
