Preston Residence Venice CA

The design for the Preston Residence began with its exterior so that the family could enjoy the perks of Southern California weather year-round. Woven into the home’s design are 3 ‘gardens’, all varying in scale and function.

One larger garden creates drama, while two smaller gardens allow for intimacy and moments of pause.

Almost every space is connected with an outdoor space to further blur the distinction between interior and exterior.

The materiality of the concrete block walls which anchor the gardens evoke a sense of heaviness and provides a visual, monolithic mass between floors while centering the horizontal planes of the home in the landscape.

Warm wood siding wraps the perimeter and sits atop the massive walls, lifting and lightening the massing.

Full height sliding glass doors open the main living space to the exterior, while the exterior gardens punctuate the interior spaces, extending sight-lines and bringing in ample natural light.

Roll-down Lutron shades custom designed by Montabla Architects manage natural light throughout the home for optimal exposure and privacy.
