Showcasing an optimum indoor-outdoor connection, this modern residence designed by Jendretzki Architects offers a practical and healthy living environment. According to the architects, "this new pavilion added to an existing mid-century house in the Rustic Canyon area of Santa Monica bordering the Pacific Palisades involved negotiating the high-functioning requirements of a Los Angeles-based family and their love for Scandinavian design and detailing".

Simple lines and ingenious functionality are two of the main features of the Santa Monica Residence.

The building has a total surface of 12,000 square feet and is well-connected with its surroundings: "By utilizing a muted material palette of light toned wood and glass we were able to harmoniously engage the southern California sun and create a tranquil work studio and inviting home." The interiors are characterized by a minimalist approach, with wood playing a major role in creating a friendly atmosphere. Have a look and tell us what you think!
