Open House Obsession: A Luminous New House By Morpheus Design And The Mayes Office, $4MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 2325 Cloy Avenue, Venice
When: Open on Sunday, January 25 from 1:00pm-4:00pm
What: Beautifully composed and detailed, this 4-bed, 5-bath house is the result of a collaboration by Adam Picker of Morpheus Design and Colby Mayes of the Mayes Office, with luminous spaces created by open expanses of clear glass, frosted glass for privacy, and scrim-like shades to control the sunlight.
Expensive Details: Hiding behind a houseplant in the dining area (below, left) the window has an elegant butted joint of frosted glass, a costly detail that could have been eliminated as a cost-saving measure. Other pricey details include the impeccable welding and finish on the stairs– and the huge, cantilevered block marble in the kitchen.
What We Love: The simple master bedroom could be in a cabin, but the master bath is straight out of a deluxe hotel.
Parking can be an issue in Venice– so not only is there a 2-car garage, there are three additional uncovered spaces.
The View: Equipped with a hot tub, the roof at dusk is quintessentially Venice.
