Santa Monica Mid Century


This Santa Monica Mid Century was designed originally by Fredrick Monhoff in 1949. It was a 3 bedroom 1 bath home, a total of 1200 square feet. It has since received several additions including a green roof now in construction.
 
In 2013, homeowners Elaine and David contacted Abeer Sweis wanting to expand square footage to meet the needs of their growing family, and to make updates. Sweis designed a new wing that provides two additional bedrooms, two bathrooms and a den, using leftover space for a laundry room and pantry. Sweis also expanded the dining area and renovated the main living space with the exception of the original brick fireplace.

There were four specific elements driving the design: indoor/outdoor living, utilizing natural light, having an open floor plan with continuity of space and views, and the use of modern materials that fit seamlessly into the midcentury architecture.

Indoor-outdoor flow both to the patio and the den on the other side was created with the use of folding doors and large windows, and by carrying the tile from the interior living space out to the patio and spa area. The hall, typically simply a circulation space, became one of their favorite rooms in the house. It ties together the spaces in the new addition and accentuates the intersection of the angles existing and new.

The clients lived in the home during this phase of construction.

The north wing of the home is undergoing renovation now in construction. An accessory dwelling unit (ADU) will replace the existing one-car garage and guest room. The challenge was to add more square footage without sacrificing the outdoor living space. Although built with contemporary innovations, the green roof design of the accessory structure compliments the original home.

“Abeer, Jeff and their team did an amazing job expanding and renovating our mid-century modern architectural home. The design process was a true partnership-Abeer listened to our needs and incorporated our preferences, while executing an incredible design vision for our home. We enjoyed the process very much. Jeff did an exceptional job leading the construction process. Every detail was addressed and the end product is truly amazing. Every aspect of our new home meets our needs, both in terms of form and function. We highly recommend [them] and would hire them again without reservation.” – David + Elaine

Yoshi Flower

In June, the naturally genre-blending artist released his latest mixtape, Peer Pleasure, which was described by Rolling Stone as the “perfect album” for a “smooth summer soundtrack.” The nine-track tape explores various topics such as, validation, love and envy, amongst others. Earlier this month, V MAN premiered the “glittering” video for “Empty.” Despite the glitz and glam, bathing in diamonds, and living an extraordinarily wealthy lifestyle, the track continues to explore
another feeling of his, what’s money without love? Yoshi is set to hit
the stage at Lollapalooza today and will be joining Omar Apollo tonight
at Lolla Aftershow. 

Peer Pleasure combines a variety of instrumentation styles, from moody
beats to folky strings, with his sincerely pop-rock affectation and
gloomy words. The tape ends up being a soundtrack to the most chaotic
teen dramedy to have ever been made. It lands squarely between
temperaments, allowing for a listening experience that’s just as
genuine as his previous release, American Raver.” – PAPER

About The Harold Robinson Foundation

The Harold Robinson Foundation is a 501(c) founded in 2009 by Jeff Robinson, Joyce Hyser Robinson and David Moss.

The foundation is named for Jeff’s late father. The Harold Robinson Foundation provides the funding and resources to send Los Angeles’s less fortunate children to camp, in a safe and nurturing environment, far away from the stress that most of them face on a daily basis. The foundation also runs a summer day at the Markham Middle School in Watts, CA.
