A small contemporary home with inspiring ideas in Manhattan Beach

contemporary-small-home-exterior

This small contemporary home designed by Laney LA is located in Manhattan Beach, a city in southwestern Los Angeles County, California. Instead of beginning this project with an outcome in mind, this 1,400 square foot dwelling began from a polemic place — exploring the shared conviction regarding the concentrated power of living with a smaller footprint.

From the gabled silhouette to passive ventilation, this dwelling captures the nostalgia for the past with the sustainable practices of the future. While the exterior materials contrast a calm, minimal palette with the sleek lines of the gabled silhouette, the interior spaces embody a playful, artistic spirit.

From the hand painted De Gournay wallpaper in the master bath to the rugged texture of the over-grouted limestone and Portuguese cobblestones, the home is an experience that encapsulates the unexpected and the timeless.
