New Marmol Radziner in Santa Monica, $6.575MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 945 Berkeley Street, Santa Monica
What: A new spec property designed and built by the distinguished architectural firm Marmol Radziner, taking advantage of an upsloping lot with panoramic views. The firm has long been an innovator, with a practice mostly concentrated from Venice to Santa Monica; for the past few years, they’ve taken the design/build rubric to new levels, giving them total control over construction and finishes. Siting the home at the top of the lot (below) gave it unparalleled views and a patio running the width of structure.
What We Love: The level of care in detailing and construction is unparalleled. Below, the small cubic study looks out to the pool courtyard. The custom sliding doors extend from floor to ceiling without a visible header; motorized shades descend from the slim opening in the ceiling.
Below, the library media room adjacent to the kitchen.
A serene family room on the bedroom level has become a Marmol Radziner trademark; the master suite looks out over Santa Monica.
