Open-flow Modern Dwelling in Venice Beach by Minarc
This warm and family friendly modern home is located in Venice Beach, California, designed by studio Minarc. The Horwitz residence is a 4,500 square foot, six-bedroom, two-story home featuring soaring ceilings and enormous planes of curtain-less windows that give sweeping outdoor views from every room in the house, including the bathrooms. To soften right angles and lack of architectural ornamentation, the designers kept many of the materials warm and organic-feeling. They applied richly patterned, burnt oak floors in most of the ground floor areas, and even wrapping up onto the walls in the family and living rooms. The effect was to trick the eye to give it a sense of not knowing when the floor ends and when the wall begins.
