When a young couple found a house and detached studio-garage on a nice, ample lot in Venice that fit both their lifestyle and had room for their in-laws, they knew they had something special. The home had potential, but was in serious need of some TLC. The stucco buildings were a far cry from the home the couple had envisioned. The homeowners turned to Daly Genik Architects, who dove into the project. The architects renovated the two buildings, wrapping them in an aluminum exoskeleton to give them filtered light, balconies and added privacy.
