Project by: Robert Sweet of ras-a, inc.
Location: Venice, California
As this project proves, sometimes even an affordable material like plywood can look sleek and modern when used effectively, and can really make an intentional design statement. We think you'll find some inspiration in this professional project!
From the designer: This project is a whole house renovation to a small compartmentalized bungalow in Venice, California. The new design opens up the floor plan by removing walls and ceilings. Large bi-folding exterior doors open the living room and master suite to a large backyard where the clients host frequent outdoor dinner parties.
The original oak floors were patched, then bleached to create uniformity. The attic space was removed and the new vaulted ceilings finished in raw plywood. Mexican concrete tile is used both in the interior and exterior adding a graphical pop to a mostly neutral material palette.
Thanks, Robert Sweet of ras-a, inc.!
