Set in Venice Beach, blocks from Abbot Kinney, this remodel was an interesting project in that the client never planned to live in the space. Thoughtful design for “anyone” can be a challenge, but the end result here included a lot of great features. This home received a restructured floor plan including a new bedroom, enlarged master suite, and rooftop deck. The palette needed to feel interesting and detailed while appealing to any person who may live in the space. Ultimately, the black cabinetry and contrasting hickory defined small and very functional spaces of interest with furniture custom-designed in-house that fit seamlessly into each room.
