BAY CITIES LOFTS



LOCATION: VENICE, CA

DATE: 2001

PROGRAM: 9 ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE LOFTS

SIZE: 27,000 SF



Located in the Abbot Kinney artist district in Venice, the Bay Cities Artist-in-Residences occupy nine adjacent lots on the site of the former Bay Cities Laundry. An adaptation of the “artist loft” is a desirable typology, creating large open spaces which adapt

and blend living and working environments. The narrowness of these lots and designation as artist-in-

residence allowed for more leniant setbacks, creating long narrow buildings, easily dividable between residential and commercial areas. Our project is really nine separate live/work lofts on adjacent lots which through a common palette of forms, colors, and materials create a varied yet architecturally consis-

tent language.
