Custom Urban House | Palms House II | Kevin Daly Architects
Step into the epitome of modern elegance with Palms House II, a stunning custom urban residence in Venice, California, designed by the visionary Kevin Daly Architects. This architectural marvel seamlessly blends contemporary design with functionality, creating a refined and elegant space for a multigenerational family.
Palms House II is more than just a house; it’s an expression of architectural ingenuity. Built adjacent to Palms House I for a multigenerational family, the design focuses on providing both communal and private spaces. The architects, led by Kevin Daly, aimed to extend the language of the first house while ensuring each family member enjoys 850 square feet of personal space, including private outdoor areas.
At the heart of Palms House II lies a captivating communal courtyard and pool, serving as a central gathering space for the family. This carefully crafted courtyard connects the two houses and exudes the distinctive Venice vibe that captivates the essence of the locale.
Kevin Daly Architects faced the challenge of seamlessly adding onto their own work, and they met it with grace. Palms House II extends the design language of the first house, employing expressive screens, albeit in wood instead of metal. The new building’s sinuously organic form showcases the evolution of the firm’s aesthetic, proving that privacy on small lots doesn’t mean compromising on openness.
The jury was impressed by the cohesiveness of the design throughout the entire project. Despite the material shift between the two phases, the architects maintained a unified vision. Palms House II is not a mere “kit of parts” but a harmonious blend of architecture and design, creating a home that feels both functional and sculptural.
