An eager-to-downsize couple with a knack for entertaining fall in love with a tree-surrounded property for their next chapter.
In their old Brentwood abode, a carefree Los Angeles couple frequently invited friends over for dinners revolving around from-scratch pies straight out of their big pizza oven. But once the kids grew up and moved out, it was time to downsize and start anew in charming, walkable Venice Beach.
New York architecture and design firm Reddymade knew exactly how to create a compact house for the big-hearted couple that wouldn’t quell their penchant for entertaining. Founder Suchi Reddy was well acquainted with their spirited personalities, having first met the couple on vacation before fast becoming friends.
“They are both so generous and passionate about building community. Their world is full of interesting people, and they always want them to come visit. They love collaboration and conversation,” explains Reddy.
