Oak Ave
Manhattan Beach, California

This house in the lovely Tree Section of Manhattan Beach was a complete remodel and addition to an existing 70s style home that had a layout that completely neglected to connect the interior with the beautiful private backyard.

The house was taken to the studs, the layout was completely reshuffled, and we added a 2-story addition. The second floor was strategically designed to be larger than the first, creating a large covered outdoor living and dining room that seamlessly connects to the interior living space, allowing for the quintessential Southern California lifestyle.

A contrasting color palette of white walls, wood details and black metal openings and stairs makes for a dramatic yet warm esthetic throughout.
