Kuhlhaus 02 by LeanArch Architects
This single family residence located in the Gaslight District of Manhattan Beach is one in a series of homes commissioned by Kuhlhaus Development, LLC and produced by the award-winning Los Angeles based Design/Build firm Lean Arch, Inc. Committed to responsible development – redefining the modern home in response to concerns regarding energy consumption, land-use and the environment – this solar powered home with an open plan and large glass sliding doors create both visual and physical continuity between the interior and exterior. Flexible use spaces including the multiple outdoor patio and deck areas and a nod to “industrial chic” through use of building materials demonstrate why Kuhlhaus 02 is Build It Green rated.
