308  Venice WAY, VENICE, CA
 
Ming-Li Lowe Studio / Residence  
308 Venice WAY, VENICE, CA
$4,450,000

Designed and built by award-winning architect, artist, filmmaker, and educator David Ming-Li Lowe, this rare Artist-In-Residence compound, 3 blocks from the beach, has been completely renovated and outfitted with high-end fixtures and finishes, including a Boffi kitchen, providing an attractive integrated experience for the creative entrepreneur. As Gebhard and Winter noted in their classic Architectural Guidebook, you could easily drive by and not notice this building, but once it catches your eye, an exquisite attention to detail is readily apparent. The loft-like live/work space is defined by two mirrored 3-story buildings that secure the perimeter, sheltering a private inner courtyard that connects the two domains. From the front, a commercial storefront signals business activities within, while direct entry to the 3-car garage/workshop from the alley provides ample security. The two towers above hold separate Master Suites, with living room and kitchen on the middle level, connected by a hardwood deck suspended above the courtyard. The overall composition is a celebration of structural steel, inspired by predecessors like Craig Ellwood and Pierre Koenig, with exposed posts and beams, elegant cross bracing, and high-performance, energy-efficient, translucent Kalwall building panels interspersed with clear French doors and operable windows.
