24th Street Residence by Steven Kent Architect
The 24th Street Residence is a modern project by Steven Kent Architect which is located in the beautiful Santa Monica in California, USA. It is immediately noticeable that the residence presents itself with a stylish interior and exterior design that puts emphasis on the clean, straight lines.
The owner of this home is also an owner of an art gallery which is one of the reasons why the interior is decorated with art works that make the house even more awesome. Additionally, this home has 5 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, a recording studio and a home theater.
From the architects: “Clients are a Culver City art gallery owner and a musician with two young boys.From the street the house is a series of overlapping rectangular volumes each with different materials and textures. The house is anchored by a 3-story poured concrete stair enclosure.
Beside it the 2nd floor cantilevers out, sheltering the main entry. This glass volume is shrouded with a retractable aluminum structure fitted with wood slats for privacy.The main floor is a large living space that opens to the outdoor room. They are connected by an expansive wall of glass multi panel sliding doors. A Boffi kitchen is open to the dining/ living area with island seating for casual family eating.A giant floor to ceiling solid wood slab door recesses into wall to seamlessly join the main living area and home theatre. The rolling door seals shut for sound and light separation.
Upstairs, the glass walled master suite & deck float over the outdoor room and open to the backyard pool area below. Glass wraps around the master bedroom & bathroom. A bamboo hedge provides privacy. A basement recording studio features a mixing room and soundproof room for live instruments.The house incorporates photovoltaic & hydronic solar systems, radiant flooring, Low-E commercial glazing, automated house controls and many other energy saving features.”
