    Default Beachfront face-lift

    A squat box of a house in Marina del Rey, Calif., was built in 1923, but the second floor, with its mushroomlike mansard roof, was added in the '70s. The architect in charge of its renovation, results of which are seen at right, dryly described it as "a community service project."



    The owners, David Feldman and Judy Iriye (shown with their 3-year-old daughter, Saya), decided to renovate rather than build a new house. The location's stunning beach views would have been lost had they rebuilt from scratch, because building regulations now require larger setbacks

    i like it in theory, but it's too sophisticated & "everything in it's place-looking" for me personally.

    but, dude, how i wanna get stoned & curl up on the fluffy bean bag chair!

    Love the outside with the waterfall and the couch with the curved roof. Everything else is too white and pristine, like ang said "everything in it's place-looking". The outside is nice; I like the "mushroom" look of the roof.

    It has a lot of good points but if it were mine I would soften it up.
