Seaside El Segundo Modern Home
A young Australian family from Sydney who wanted to expand and modernize their home selected Alloi as the architect and builder. The existing kitchen living and dining spaces were built in the 1950s as segmented and dark spaces. The Alloi team carefully designed the opening of spaces such that the kitchen became open to the dining with a 25ft long integrated counter that transforms into a work desk. The interior space flows into the exterior by way of a new large sliding door system, in a matte black finish, which doubles the size of the living room. The warm southern Californian beach air is invited into the home and filter through the cedar vertical screen. A private front yard home extension is created through a unique and considerate facade design. The home speaks to the neighborhood with an interplay of connectivity and privacy, solace, and excitement.
