Georgina: An Addition to An Existing Home with Modern-Day Barn Elements

Georgina 7

Located in Santa Monica, California, Georgina is a project of designing a 4,500-square-foot addition to an existing home by Marmol Radziner Architecture. This addition can create a dedicated and comfortable place for a family to entertain. Modern-day barn elements of this house can complement the materials and color pallet.

The architect also joins the adjacent lot to the existing property to create a comfortable room for the new three-story building. This building opens onto a pool, spa, and patio. The copper roofing and wood beams are the modern-bay elements that can complement the materials and color pallet.

This project also plays on the idea of a barn as a separate, extra, usable space with an open-ridge skylight to let in the warm natural light.

The architect excavates the adjacent lot ground to built the addition and also to sink the pool into the earth. With a visible wood-grain pattern, the board-formed concrete walls can add durability and warmth, unify the interior and the interior well.
