When Paola and Steve purchased their Venice Beach home, it was essentially a blank canvas. More specifically, a boxy blank canvas with impressively high ceilings, a wide open floorplan, copious natural light, wood floors, and exposed beams.  It had all the makings of an enviable modernist dream home. However, there was no separation of rooms, as the space's previous occupant was an advertising agency. Enter Paola and Steve, both trained architects, who gracefully tackled the challenge of converting the anonymous space into a home that embodies their family and personal style.
