    Default A Venice addition made of three living walls


    By Debra Prinzing
    ( Genaro Molina / Los Angeles Times ) You may have heard of living walls, but how about a living box? The exterior walls of the new wing of the Bricault family's Venice home are clad in sedums and other succulents, which soften the contemporary architecture so it looks like a plush, verdant floating cube.
    Owner Paul Bricault likes the way the horticultural house gets people talking. "Everyone who comes here looks at it with this quixotic expression. We get all sorts of questions, including, do we have roots coming through the inside walls?"












    (Genaro Molina / Los Angeles Times) Four-year-old Dustin Bricault can often be found playing in the secret hideout that occupies the narrow space between the home and the church next door. Marc built it as a surprise for the kids, recycling extra building material instead of taking it to the landfill.

    Lov, love, love the outside. I always wanted a house that's completely overgrown.
    Hello mother fucker! when you ask a question read also the answer instead of asking another question on an answer who already contain the answer of your next question!
