A Venice Beach refuge

Posted on Tue, 15 Feb 2022 by KiM

Electric Bowery had the pleasure of partnering with clients who share deep roots in the arts, and were looking to establish their own refuge. The goal was to find the perfect balance of open area and urban energy. The site ultimately selected was an oversized Venice lot providing flexibility to build a home with a unique program of accessory spaces for art, yoga, and meditation – without sacrificing outdoor living areas. Upon entry through the front gates, the property is perceived as a courtyard sanctuary with meandering gardens laced together by limestone and vein-cut travertine. The organic hardscape provides a clean canvas for lush landscape design by LA-based Terremoto who has a penchant for softening the built environment. Playing off the verdant landscape are interior plaster finishes in warm whites, subtle blush, and bolder turquoise which add a layer of vibrancy and sustain the feeling of a thriving oasis. Custom steel windows frame each view with thoughtful intention. Handcrafted millwork in indigo-ebony and bleached oak, all designed in-house, are paired with an unexpected yet classic choice of finishes and fixtures. Several light sources by Apparatus Studio double as sculptural highlights. The result is an incredibly relaxed and soothing home, with an organic and sophisticated edge. (Photos: Laure Joliet)
