    Default Santa Monica apartment building transformed into modern family house


    (Nancy Pastor / For The Times)
    By Lisa Boone, Los Angeles Times

    Rachel Klauber-Speiden posed a daunting challenge to her architects: Transform a 1962 apartment building into a single-family home.
    She and husband Josh Empson wanted a space that was both open and private, plus functional for son Becket and daughter Lucinda, the latter of whom is pictured here in the backyard.
    "I wanted a home that was livable, warm, affordable and whimsical," Klauber-Speiden says.

    Like the storage solution for bar stools. Hate the stripes on the breakfast bar. Love the sink.

    I'd move in with my own furniture. Love the kitchen countertops too.

    I love it-great spaces, good view. Big kitchen, room for everything. Kids could roller skate if they wanted to.

    I like how they made use of the space, but the overall design sucks. Pick a style and stick with it.
