Venice Beach-based architecture and design firm Electric Bowery have completed the 5th Street Residence. Acting as their own client, they designed and built the mid century-inspired home for a corner lot in Santa Monica, California.

 

The exterior of the home is clad in bleached cedar and stucco, with a second story deck that breaks up the massing and relates to the corner at the second level.

Inside, the ground floor of the home, which has mostly concrete floors, opens entirely onto a grassy yard and patio, that’s surrounded by lush landscape. The living room features a wall of light wood shelving, while floor-to-ceiling sliding glass wall floods the interior with natural light.

The dining room in the open ground floor plan is slightly raised from the living room, and is defined by the use of oak floors.

Back inside, the home has a few bedrooms, like this one below. The black window frames contrast the white walls, while simple and neutral furnishings give the room a calm and relaxed atmosphere.

The home also has a few bathrooms. In this bathroom, a wood double-sink vanity sits opposite the shower with a glass surround and a built-in bathtub. Black framed mirrors break up the white walls.

In this bathroom, another wood vanity has been used, but this it has a long concrete vanity top, providing enough room to place a few decorative items.

Here’s a look at another one of the bathrooms. A round mirror hangs on the wall, while a simple wood shelf sits below it. Just like in the other bathrooms, there’s a simple wood vanity with storage and black hardware.
