The King Residence by John Friedman Alice Kimm Architect
The King Residence is a single family property that defies every notion of the modern contemporary home, located in the Sunset Park section of Santa Monica, California designed by John Friedman Alice Kimm Architect. The home sits on a gentle slope on a wedge-shaped corner lot with a long side bordering a moderately busy street and a short side on a quite side street. The obvious choice would have been to orient the home to face the side street and to enclose the backyard with a tall fence. The architects proposed to orient the L-shaped 4,300 square foot home to face the busier street, with the glass fronted living area and upstairs bedrooms overlooking directly onto a busy neighborhood intersection.
