Designed for a young family, the Vienna Way residence sits upon an extensively landscaped property in Venice, California. Floor-to-ceiling glass and a plethora of outdoor living spaces fully integrate the home within the native landscape.
Due to narrow site constraints, Marmol Radziner architects divided living spaces into thirds, with the two main volumes placed on the outer edges of the property, bridged by a sunken kitchen in the center. Formal living and dining areas are combined in the southern space, flowing out onto an outdoor dining terrace. More casual, private spaces can be found in the northern part of the structure, including a family room, with an office and bedrooms on the first and second floors respectively.
A second-story hallway offers views of the green roof above the kitchen and the tree laden landscape below. Lastly, the kitchen acts as the dwelling's central social hub, connecting private and public areas and providing views of the pool area, the perfect vantage point for keeping an eye on little ones. Inside, wood panelling has been used extensively throughout all main living areas, bringing a sense of warmth that's enhanced by plush carpeting and strong black accents.
Vienna Way is an impeccably designed, creative family home that answers a myriad of needs, while navigating the property's constraints with ease.
