Contemporary 33rd Street Residence in Manhattan Beach

This impressive contemporary residence is located in Manhattan Beach, a beachfront city located in southwestern Los Angeles County, California, USA. It’s a very striking residence, with a design and architectural elements that really make it stand out in that area. Because of the inclined site where the residence is located, a certain design had to be adopted. In fact, all the houses from that area had to adapt their structure to the environment.

The residence was a project developed by Californian studio Rockefeller Partners Architects. It sits on a 4.500 sq ft lot and it’s quite an impressive home, with more than enough space for a small or medium family. The construction was completed in 2008 and there haven’t been any renovations so the house still features all the original elements.

The floor to ceiling glass walls are a modern characteristic and so is the unusual roof that seems to be made of two different parts that hug each other. The wooden box-like part of the house is just a hint that lets you know how cozy and warm the interior really is.{pics by Eric Staudenmaier}
