House design description by Marmol Radziner

The Palms Residence is located on a narrow, urban lot in Venice, California. The home looks inward, incorporating covered decks and small courtyard space, giving the structure a sense of privacy despite its location on an infill lot.

Comprised of 14 modules the 2,800 sq ft house includes three bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a living room/dining room, a double height kitchen with an operable skylight, an office, and 700 additional square feet of outdoor living space. Vast expanses of glass on the southern side of the structure fill the home with natural light and connect the interior and exterior spaces.

Natural materials are perfect for the eco home design. The living room design with large windows and skylights looks bright and beautiful. The home includes custom walnut casework in the living room and kitchen, concrete floors on the first floor, and eco-timber hickory floors on the second floor. The bedrooms have built-in beds and additional casework. The exterior of the home is finished with cedar siding. A series of screening techniques, including landscaping, fencing, and louvered panels provide shelter from the street while retaining the open feel of the home.

Modern kitchen design with sky light, wood kitchen cabinets, and island are just a few highlights that the home features. It includes a variety of green features, – a recycled steel frame, Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS), Triple-Pane insulating glass, eco-friendly materials, Energy Star-rated appliances, and natural cooling features. The home was produced in the MRP factory, substantially reducing the environmental impact of the construction.
