Marmol Radziner Designs with Kids & Outdoors in Mind

Los Angeles Times

Architecture firm Marmol Radziner (of prefab fame) was given a challenge: to design a home that was equally comfortable to children and adults, seamlessly transitioned from interior to exterior, and was all the while welcoming and warm. This Venice, California home, inhabited by photographer Megan Schoenbachler and cinematographer Jonathan Sela, rises to the occasion at every turn.

Largely conceived by the owners, the design was inspired after a tour of architect Ron Radziner's Venice home. They had done the ranch house thing, the Spanish Villa thing. This time, they looked toward a modern style to complete their vision.

Making a sophisticated home with children at its focus is always a tall order. We love how the rough-hewn wood invites rigorous use. We were also particularly taken with the incredible handcrafted bunk bed. It certainly looks like their son, Indika, is using it to its full potential.
