This new two-story home in Los Angeles blends Art Deco with a modern, minimalist edge.

The home is surrounded by a modern wooden fence that matches the cedar plank siding found on the second floor of the home.

In the Mar Vista neighborhood of Los Angeles, architecture firm Hsu McCullough designed a new home for a young family after a planned renovation of their existing 1925 home revealed an unworkable structure. The totally new Moore Residence is designed to meet the family’s every need while fitting in with the 1920s and 1930s homes found throughout the neighborhood. 

The building's crisp, white facade nods to the neighboring white stucco homes that were constructed in the 1920s and 1930s. The elongated arched windows give the exterior a 1920s Art Deco feel.

The family sought a design that suggested California Mediterranean in terms of materials and colors. They also wanted several gathering spaces throughout the home—both indoors and out—that would accommodate the family of four. 



The multiple planes of the facade create a complex form, allowing part of the second floor to hide behind the white plaster cement mass at the front of the home.

At the rear, a large open patio with wood planks and an outdoor eating space allow for indoor-outdoor living.
