3 Edgy Homes That Will Change The Way You See L.A.

Explore a new side of a classic Los Angeles neighborhood on our virtual architecture tour. 

If you took our last virtual tour, you know that Los Angeles is a treasure trove of historic homes and iconic landmarks. We’re talking about Hancock Park, Crestwood Hills and Venice — just to name a few neighborhoods that architecture and design enthusiasts can’t resist visiting.  

Fortunately, those of us at home can join in on the fun. While the Venice Family Clinic gears up for their latest Art & Architecture Tour, this time featuring the work of design team Leo Marmol and Ron Radziner, we’re doing some exploring of our own. Get ready to see Venice, Calif. from a new perspective.

Our first stop leads us into the heart of Venice, where this 3,400-square-foot modern home boasts clean, distinct lines and large glass panels. Sliding doors throughout the house create easy access to outside spaces like the courtyard and pool, and provide ample natural light. With a mix of concrete floors, marbled surfaces and walnut veneer panels, the Milwood house is a warm approach to modernism.

Second Stop: The Palms Residence

Not far behind is the Palms Residence, an impressive 2,800-square-foot prefab home located on an urban lot. Once inside, you’ll find three bedrooms, two and a half baths, a great room, kitchen and office — all possible using fourteen different modules. Large expanses of glass along the south side of the house keep this beauty bright and well-connected to the outdoors.

For our third and final stop, we approach the Stone Residence, a 3,700-square-foot home that’s well-suited for a family with an active lifestyle. As you walk around, you’ll notice Marmol and Radziner’s signature style of floor-to-ceiling glass panels, which creates an easy flow between the interior and exterior of the home. Sharp lines keep the space defined and elegant.
