Kuhlhaus 01

Manhattan Beach, CA


Lot Size: 1350 sq. ft.

Floor area (including garage): 2200 sq. ft.

Project scope: New Construction

A counter-attack on the developer supplied housing stock where the norm for the single family residence is driven by the mentality that “bigger is better”; Kuhlhaus 01 redefines the prototype for housing in the area. Located on a half lot with a floor area of under 1800 SF, the three bedroom, three bath residence incorporates an open design with flexible living spaces to mitigate the smaller floor plates. Expanses of floor to ceiling glass provide breathtaking 270-degree views of the Pacific Ocean. The project also integrates a 2 KW array of photovoltaic modules that will supply 100% of required electricity for the home.
