Mar Vista House

Mar Vista House

The latest Design Initiatives project is for a new ground-up construction of 2 story single family house with 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms in charming Mar Vista area of Los Angeles, California.

Mar Vista House

It has minimal, clean, soft and organically waived lines for relaxing and joyful experience what resting at home should be. In the same time, the very practical and functional layout will facilitate the efforts of а young couple with two kids in their everyday routine.

At the ground level an open scheme blends the Stair, Living with a fireplace, Dining, and Kitchen areas with 10’ ceilings into a poly-functional environment with great visual connectivity. In addition there is a Study / Guest room which storage easily could be turned into a sixth bathroom. 16’ long sliding curtain opens up the back wall into the spacious back yard with Zen landscaping.

The second floor incorporates a Laundry Closet and 4 Bedrooms with 4 full Bathrooms including a Master Suit with a latticed Balcony overlooking the quiet back yard. Through the contemporary method of flexibility and transformability the door wall could be easily removed and Bedroom #4 with its Walk-in-Closet could be integrated with the Common Area into a Play Area. Grown-up kids later on will still enjoy that secondary Living space for video gaming and TV, gym, pool or ping-pong table.

On both floors very little floor area is spent on hallways and circulation. Eventually a green terrace will be developed on the flat rooftop.
