1620 Electric Ave
Venice, CA

Situated less than a block away from the heart of Venice's Abbot Kinney district, 1620 Electric Ave is a new house featuring 5 bedrooms, a pool, and basement-level screening and rec rooms.

Owing to its basement, large setbacks, and efficient floor plans, the house provides over 3,500 sf of elegant living space (on a 40' x 100' lot), all while keeping a generous yard and evoking the exterior massing of a much smaller home.  Decidedly modern, the design nonetheless weaves in contextual elements (pitched roofs, overhangs, wood cladding, lush planting) to create a 'feel' that is at once new and belonging to the street.

 

Construction for the house has begun.  When complete, the project is poised to reinvigorate the character of one Venice's most eclectic and interesting residential pockets.
