Located in Venice California, just a short stroll from the beach, stands Victoria House. It\u2019s the latest build from Breakform Design who achieved the near-impossible: convincing an ageing community that new development can actually enrich the area. Victoria House is modern. It\u2019s edgy and different. But not overwhelming.\r\n\r\nVictoria House features a soaring glass door that leads to an open and seamless floor plan. The kitchen is fitted with custom walnut cabinets, Miele appliances and a generous centre island for food prep. The Dining area is complemented by retractable glass doors leading to the patio. Upstairs, there are two bedrooms and a media room with sliding glass doors that lead to a roof deck decorated with drought-tolerant landscaping.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nDiscussing what makes the architecture of Victoria House unique, Ridaa Murad, founder of Breakform Design said \u201cWe tried to have as many angular lines as we could. The cabinetry, the stair slopes, the slant of the window shades, the roofline, the whole house kind of works in angles.\u201d\r\n\r\n\u201cThe last thing we wanted was for the home to look like a big box. So our focus was to go the opposite direction while still having very usable space.\u201d\r\n\r\nThe top floor is where you can find the large master suite with a wood plank ceiling, walk-in closet and a separate office area leading to a private outdoor deck. The windows were specifically placed to capture as much ocean breeze as possible, making air conditioning often unnecessary. The Sunshade study was designed to prevent the build from blocking neighbouring houses\u2019 sunlight.\r\n\r\n\u201cWe\u2019re proud that we have neighbours that have been here for decades and we managed to build this house with a sense of place,\u201d adds Ridaa.\r\nImages - Airows\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
