The Ramar residence is located in Sunset Park in Santa Monica, about 1 mile from the Pacific Ocean. It lays on an up hill lot facing South West. The scope of the project was an integral interior and exterior remodel of an existing 2,150 SF single family residence built in 1958. Apart from the remodel, a studio space was required for one of the owners, who is a fashion designer-where she would be able to design and execute her work, and have a lounge area. We decided to do a detached structure located at the rear of the lot in order to take advantage of the views, light and ocean breeze.
