Oxford Triangle Residence Offers a New Spin on a Venice Beach House

If you have been to Venice Seaside, California, the Oxford Triangle home is not your normal beach front residence sighting. The exceptional home sits on a slender triangular large amount by a historic electric powered streetcar line in use from 1905 to the mid 1950s. Architect Matthew Royce, of M Royce Architecture, intended the dwelling for himself with inspiration drawn from a excursion to Iran in 2013. Grand villas in the town of Kashan housed basements that loaded with snow just about every winter, which grew to become their refrigerator in the summer time. A return prevent in London added more inspiration – row houses with gaps among the house and sidewalk making it possible for light-weight into the basements below.


Royce translated the inspiration into the new dwelling by introducing house in between the public sidewalk and the composition. Almost everything constructed earlier mentioned ground was to optimize the limited footprint, and beneath ground is the place the areas reward from purely natural gentle and ocean breezes filtering down.
