We were admiring the photos of this corner situated Santa Monica residence designed by John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects (the Ehrlich House) when one of the exterior photos reminded us about an ongoing discussion we've had about residence location. Our better half is mostly opposed of living in a corner situated unit or house because of privacy issue, while some of our personal favourite homes are situated on corners. Do you have a bias/preference for corner residences? Or is it a non-factor in your choice in where to live?

What, you don't care about the corner home question and just want to know more about the Ehrlich House pictured above? Fair enough. The Santa Monica residence was designed by John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects with passive and active eco-friendly materials and technologies, including motorized skylights, a rooftop photovoltaic system that provides 85% of the 3,500 square foot home's energy needs, a gray water filtering system that provides gardening water from household waste water and in-floor radiant heating, reycled cotton insulation, certified Forest Stewardship Council Jatoba wood flooring, and low VOC paint throughout. A beautiful, albeit luxurious home throughout, whether it's situated on a corner or not.
