This creative home by David Hertz & Studio of Environmental Architecture was crafted with a labor of love that consisted of a home that did not require any interior load bearing walls.
As a result, the exterior facade and walls were built at a slight angle, and the span is mainly made of clear material that allows for a single run span structurally. uninterrupted views of the Venice beach are accomplished with thick glass sheeting and there are even panels made from 30 inch-by-30 inch metal framed pieces that are each about 6 inches thick to keep everything uniform and in place.
This home’s ability to be completely open and see through in most parts offers up a huge advantage to other homes in the area– air ventilation, natural light and pivoting windows are all assisting in the green features of this residence.
