Design, Bitches build an award-winning Venice bungalow with nods to a Modernist icon

(Yoshihiro Makino)

Venice, California, may be a small city—it measures just three square miles—but within its borders exists an exquisite menagerie of residential architecture. Classic craftsman bungalows and mid-century modern ranches juxtapose postmodern dwellings (like Frank Gehry’s Norton and Spiller Houses) and contemporary experiments in luxe living on microscopic lots. Since its founding in 1905, eclecticism has been Venice’s aesthetic lifeblood, challenging each successive ground-up build or renovation to speak the definitive truth of what Venetian living is all about.

The latest response to this perennial challenge comes from architects Catherine Johnson and Rebecca Rudolph, the duo known as Design, Bitches. After demolishing the original bungalow (it no longer met seismic safety standards), the architects and clients engaged in an eight year collaboration to create a new home.
