Modern Family Home by Dennis Gibbens 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. The T-shaped second floor of the main house contains a large master suite and two children’s bedrooms, a laundry room, an office and a large black-out media room. A guest house pool house is situated at the south end of the property on axis with the pool. The main exterior materials are white stucco, glass and metal panel. Photo-voltaic panels on the roof provide a portion of the electricity for the residence.
