Santa Monica Canyon House

Modernist mid-century

Innovation through detail brought this modern Santa Monica Canyon home to reality. Every detail was precisely coordinated with the architect, general contractor and Alloi team in order to make the owner’s dream home a reality.

Glass Walls

Glass walls slide into hidden pockets and clearstory windows operate to allow the natural canyon wind patterns to cool the home, enabling the homeowners to experience Southern California’s temperate climate throughout their home. Skylights are strategically placed throughout the center of the home to provide natural lighting and cost savings, while high efficiency LED lights illuminate areas of the home not flooded with natural daylight. Due to the open layout, the extensive remodel of the existing 2,200 square foot home plus the 1,000 square feet addition makes this home feel much larger than initially perceived.

Nature

Inviting nature into architecture, bougainvillea flows over the smooth plaster exterior walls blending natural and man-made elements

Skylights

Clerestory windows in the kitchen establish a direct visual link to nature, while the plant shelf along the cabinets further enhances this connection.

Verticality

Due to the open layout, the extensive remodel of the existing 2,200 square foot home plus the 1,000 square feet addition makes this home feel much larger than initially perceived.
