We aren’t able to attend the Dwell Home Tours during Dwell on Design this year, but they were generous enough to photograph the homes on the tour for us. First up on the West Side Home Tour 2013 is the Garten + Reid Residence, a redesigned 1940’s bungalow with a 1969 addition that the architect herself lives in with her sculptor husband. Architect Molly Reid renovated this three-bedroom, 2,500 square foot, Venice, California home and studio as a work/live residence to suit their creative lifestyles.
The residence is a series of four spaces that include: the front garden room, the redesigned house, the rear garden, and the garage/studio.
The living spaces easily transition to the outdoors giving the family the best of California indoor/outdoor living. The large mahogany doors slide open to double the space of the living room.
A semi-transparent wavy, wooden slatted sculpture wall creates a separate between the kitchen and the dining and living room areas.
