308  Venice WAY, VENICE, CA
Ming-Li Lowe Studio / Residence  
308 Venice WAY, VENICE, CA

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.

Warren W. Wagner, W3 Architects | McRight/Wagner Home and Studios, 2001. Here on the quiet side of Venice, close to the ocean yet far from urban distractions, this unique creative compound provides an intimate setting for living and working in harmony with nature. The large quarter-acre lot generously accommodates two separate structures seamlessly connected to the mature drought-tolerant landscape, with fire pit, outdoor dining, and ample room for pool and future additions. Facing the street, the award-winning studio houses the architects office downstairs and artists workshop up, noteworthy for both architectural integrity and innovative sustainable technologies, features too often mutually exclusive. Thick block walls and polished concrete floors are visually compelling but also capitalize on the suns energy to heat and cool the home, and a passive solar water system integrates in-floor radiant heat. Similarly, a series of large custom steel doors provides a dramatic faade element, but also direct on-shore breezes into the home for passive ventilation. The result is a cohesive architectural statement in the sculptural school of Southern California, with exposed structural steel and glued laminated timber, also sensitive to the environment. In back, the original 1962 bungalow has been opened and expanded, with raised ceilings, large skylights, exposed wood framing, and French doors opening to an outdoor deck and spa. Together the two homes function as a unified system, with separate spaces for living and working at opposite ends of the lot, with plenty of room for recreating in between a necessity in todays complicated world. Front: 2 BD, 1 BA, 2,200 SF. Back: 2 BD, 1 BA, 1,076 SF. 10,894 SF Lot.

Inventive geometric planes fill architect Steven Shortridges modernist houses with natural light, open communal spaces, and private wings, merging all the restorative possibilities of beach life with bold design. Shortridge lived across the alley from the property while it was being built, allowing him to meticulously puzzle out walls of custom cabinets to create the houses seamlessly sleek zig-zag interiors that rise from a 30-by-80-foot lot. Completed in 2005 for Sex and the City and Nurse Jackie producer John Melfi, each rooms angular details are both polished and functional. A calming courtyard entrance beside a Stan Bitters fountain shares a concrete floor with the kitchen and bar while floor-to-ceiling glass doors allow the two spaces to flow as one. The acid-washed concrete with radiant heating unifies temperatures both indoors and out. Teak seating rings the courtyard and firepit while inside a stainless Sub-Zero, Miele range, vent hood, and cabinets blend into an extended wall of teak that hides a pantry, ovens, and a coffee maker. A stainless custom outdoor grill echoes the aesthetic. The combined space, adjacent to the houses living and dining rooms, functions as a continuous room malleable for entertaining. Shortridges precise designs elegantly underplay the kitchen and private patios functional side. White Corian counters and a custom-fabricated Corian island lined with LEM Piston barstools brighten the light-filled room. A ground floor half bath is neatly tucked down a half flight of stairs near an out-of-sight ground floor garage with a roll-up door. Up a few steps from the entry and kitchen, an open dining room sits below a large living room, yet each remains a distinct space in Shortridges design. The dining area, illuminated by a custom-crafted David Weeks Torroja Mobile, is surrounded by windows and skylights letting in natural light. A dramatic concrete wall rises from the bottom of the stairs to the master bedroom. The living room, with its
