Modern Architectural Computer Rendering

When building a modern home in Manhattan Beach, Michael Lee Architects are the ones to make your vision a reality. They did just that for the Kim Family as they maximized the square footage on this small corner lot and captured views from every angle imaginable! This 4-story home opens up on every level to let the fresh air and the light penetrate through creating a treehouse-like effect. The windows on the top level pocket into the walls on all sides which allows the home to be completely open to the ocean air while the glass railing makes you to feel like you're floating out into the ocean.

Modern Living Room Design and Modern Entertainment Unit

Fireplace Design with Floating Caesarstone Base and Walnut Cabinets

See Materials, a West Hollywood showrom and interior design firm, designed the interior and provided all the finish materials for this amazing residence. The fireplace wall is a main feature on the upper level and See Materials was sure to address the feature wall like it was a work of art. The floating Caesarstone base suspends across the room and acts as a platform for the remaining elements on this wall. The walnut components storage from Pianca hides all of the entertainment components in a clean and elegant manner. The tall white laquer units frame the television while keeping the lines sleek and clean without compromising on storage. I'd love to relax in this simple and elegant space where the fireplace and the stars sparkle together!

Gray and White Scavolini Kitchen Bubble Lamp and Saarinen Table

This gorgeous "Mood" Kitchen, from Scavolini, in a gunmetal gray matte laquer combined with the white glossy laquer flows into this open plan with ease. Furniture-like in its aesthetic and chef-like in it's function, the kitchen becomes a primary feature of the house. Sharing an upper level with the living room, this is by far the most used room of the house. The porcelain tiles look and feel like concrete, but the radiant heating provides the warmth, coziness, and practicality this home needs. The Kim's love Mid-Century furniture so this Saarinen table, chairs and the bubble lamp are the perfect pieces to soften up these clean modern lines. The Kim's debated on whether or not to add bold color in this room through the use of chairs. If they had gone this route these S Chairs in red could've been a great addition!

You can sit and soak in this undermount tub and look at the stars reflecting off the water! Porcelain tiles resembling a vein-cut marble, a solid color Italian porcelain floor, and the natural walnut combine perfectly to create a spa-like feel in this open master bathroom. You can't go wrong with the clean lines and soft edges of these modern Italian bathroom vanities.
