Before you go, check out these summaries on the featured homes:
THE CARILLO RESIDENCE - Pacific Palisades, CA
Designed By Steven Ehrlich, FAIA - EHRLICH ARCHITECTS
The Carrillo Residence occupies a long narrow site on the rim of Santa Monica Canyon. Designed for a young couple with two children, the house addresses the formal and informal needs of the family while taking advantage of the Southern California climate and views. The orientation of the house reinforces the geometry of the site. A series of stone masses define the ground floor program while a floating white box houses the bedroom wings and slides over and past the stone to gesture towards the canyon and the views.  The glass living room volume sits at the far end of the site adjacent to the main bar of the house and divides the outdoor space into two distinct courts. 

LA MESA HOUSE - Santa Monica, CA
Designed by John Dutton, AIA, LEED AP - D U T T O N  a r c h i t e c t s
The original front of a 1924 Santa Monica historic landmark- an early adobe house by John Byers- was restored; the rest of the house was demolished and a new courtyard house built behind the historic front. The architectural ‘completion’ of the house allowed for interiors to be contemporary, and for the design and detailing to become more modern toward the rear of the site, where a detached guest house and an infinity-edge lap pool provide views to the Santa Monica Mountains and the ocean.  The emphasis was on integration of interior rooms with both the central courtyard and ancillary exterior spaces.  Research from Byers’ archives as well as forensic analysis of the original house provided clues as to the materials and finishes that were used for the rest of the house.

St. Jerome Parish Hall Achieves LEED Silver Certification 

International design firm Cuningham Group Architecture, P.A. (Cuningham Group) announces that the St. Jerome Parish Hall remodeling project has achieved LEED® Silver certification by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). The St. Jerome Parish Hall project is the first project with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to become LEED® certified. It was certified Silver per the USBGC “New Construction and Major Renovation” Category, Version 2.2.

Following the Church’s teachings that the environment is God’s gift to everyone, the Parish made a commitment to create a “green” hall within the remodeling project. Sustainable goals were in place from the outset as Cuningham Group, Stonemark Construction Management and the client collaborated on making sustainability a visible priority in the design.
