We head again to the West Side Home Tour 2013, a part of Dwell on Design’s Dwell Home Tours, to try the Mazess House in Santa Monica, California, that was designed by Folonis Architects. This angular residence was constructed up from the unique 1919 bungalow that was in existence. Due to metropolis codes, solely 50% of the unique constructing might be demolished so new development was constructed to include it and a masonry wall runs by way of the house clearly marking the 2 halves. The new portion is constructed solely of concrete block.
The public areas are housed on the primary flooring, with the personal areas being on the second. There’s a rooftop deck that provides views of the ocean to the west and mountain views to the north. Wide expanses of glass open the area as much as the outside.
The masonry wall provides the area character and helps break up the principally black and white inside. The open tread staircase with grid-like rails refrains from being too heavy visually within the open idea dwelling space.
