Dennis Gibbens Architects created this modern home in 2012 for a client located in Venice, California, USA.

The 12,000 square foot property also includes a sports court, pool, spa, and detached guest house.

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.”
