    Default The King residence in Santa Monica

    John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects' King house is a striking residence in the Sunset Park neighborhood of Santa Monica. The green and white exterior pattern is designed to mimic the dappled light coming through trees. More important, the architects placed the four-bedroom, four-bath house toward the back of the lot, not only creating a large yard in front but also exposing the heart of the L-shaped home to the neighborhood. “That really confuses people,” Erin says. “People come over and ask, ‘Why did your architects take away your backyard?’ ” For the Kings, the design takes little away. Rather, it gives them a front porch — a patio, actually, that functions as a modern interpretation of the traditional porch.

    Is that a giant Skittle on the patio?

    The inside is too clean cut/modern for my tastes.

    Nope, not for me. It looks so seventy-ish and the outside,
    sorry Mr. Architect, is just plain ugly to me.

    It looks like possibly an inflatable something-or-other for water fun.

    The striped siding on the outside was an interesting choice.

    Um, FAIL.

    I can't believe they actually paid someone to put that hideous two-toned siding on their house. It's horrible.

    It looks like a youth hostel inside and out.

    It looks like the 70's came back and threw up their throwaways.

    i like the architecture, inside and out. those shelves are amazing. but the inside décor is lacking in character.
