The Wang cottage is located in the Ocean Park neighborhood of Santa Monica, CA one block from busy Lincoln Blvd but half a mile from the calm of the Pacific Ocean. It lays on an exceptionally elongated corner lot: 80 feet long and only 25 feet wide. The house has a contemporary clean volume with straight simple lines, but at the same time, the gable roof and cedar siding soften this volume, bringing materiality reminiscent of the cottage feel to reclaim the beachy character of the neighborhood.
On the ground floor instead of maximizing the buildable area the house is positioned an additional 3.5 feet from the required setback to create a linear semi-covered patio along the home’s street side. This design approach makes the living space actually much larger by creating an outdoor extension of the living/dining area. Large floor-to-ceiling All Weather Architectural Aluminum glass sliding doors that stretch 27 feet long connect the interior to the side patio. This decision may have made the interior dimensions a bit smaller, but it lets the home live much larger, as large glass sliders make the patio a fluid part of the interior living areas.
On the second floor, the house cantilevers over the side patio creating an open gallery that overlooks the living/dining area and connects the master suite to the guest bedroom and bathroom. Large All Weather windows connect the interior to a third-floor roof deck and a built-in bookcase with window seats providing storage and a place to read and bask in the natural daylight. The windows and doors finish is anodized aluminum which matches the standing seam roof and resonates with the silvery tones of the siding.
