Copeland Court Residence, Santa Monica

Designed for a young couple on a narrow site and facing a pedestrian walk, the single family home and detached accessory dwelling unit pay homage to the surrounding bungalows and pedestrian scale of Copeland Court by incorporating a series of stepped pavilions, clad in compatible materials and organized around a central court. The ground level program including a formal living room, kitchen, dining, and office are organized around three sides of the court and oriented towards the south to take best advantage of daylight and ocean breezes. Upstairs are two bedrooms and a master bedroom suite with outdoor deck overlooking the court. Separated from the main house by a rear garden a 2 car garage and second floor ADU face the rear alley creating a private entrance and separation from the main house.
