Santa Monica Southwestern

This southwestern style home was for a local artist who had spent time living in Santa Fe. Inspiration was drawn from  the adobe homes of New Mexico and the owner’s personal art collection.

The original home was torn down to the foundation and 1st floor framing.  Exterior walls were built 1’-0” deep to mimic traditional adobe, and also serve the purpose of noise insulation from the Santa Monica airport.

A lot of the decorative tile was created by the owner and integrated into the design, such as the mirror border (pic. 2), the backsplash and the tin plating of the cabinetry (pic. 6).
