We were introduced to design/architect Kim Gordon and her dynamic work in 2014.  We had lived in Venice for ten years and celebrated our slice of diverse beach culture, but were searching for a property that could accommodate our growing family without being forced into a Silicon Beach modern box.  Kim was building a masterpiece on the edge of Venice that had our name written all over it.

As parents, entrepreneurs, and entertainers we wanted to create a compound, a private and playful space surrounded by trees, with room for all of our toys.  In building our home from the ground up, we no longer had to sacrifice creativity and our appreciation for beautiful details, especially with Kim Gordon at the helm.

12ft ceilings, floor to ceiling custom iron frames windows and stucco walls throughout draw inspiration from Gordon’s modern Belgian aesthetic.  Unconventional details such as the cement tiles, brass fixtures, and live edge kitchen surfaces make this home feel custom and most importantly, unique.  We built a 14ft spa in the back as well as an outdoor shower for us to warm up in after a surf.  The backyard feels like a clubhouse perfectly suited for entertaining our community of friends and their children.
