Project name: Venice House
Project location: Venice, California
Firm name: Sebastian Mariscal Studio
Jury comments: Cited for Craft Japanese minimalism is hard to pull off while achieving warmth, though that’s exactly what’s happening here. Located on a narrow, deep lot within a dense residential neighborhood, this private residence is organized around the vegetated space that surrounds it. The detailing is refined and simple. The project is sophisticated, its spaces revealed in a series of beautiful vignettes. The level of craft displayed is irrefutable and something worth aspiring to, though there is nothing particularly innovative or surprising at work.
