Welcome to the spectacularly modern Vienna Way project, a home designed by Marmol Radziner.
Designed for a single family, the Vienna Way residence is located in sunny Venice, California. Floor to ceiling glazing all around the structure seamlessly integrates the home with connected outdoor living spaces and the surrounding native California landscape. The second-story expanse of glass offers views of the green kitchen roof and tree tops below.
Two main volumes, anchored near the boundaries of the property, divide the lot into thirds, bridged by a sunken, single-floor kitchen in the center. From outside, the kitchen appears shaped like a bronze box, emphasizing its significance and providing contrast to the plaster facade on the main volumes of the residence.
As the hub of the residence, the kitchen connects the social and private wings of the house, affording expansive views of the pool, side, and rear yards. The courtyard itself revolves around a sleek central pool, visually uniting the building forms.

Here we clearly see the sunken kitchen connecting the two wings of the house, overlooking the pool. Greenery surrounds the space, appearing even on the roof of the kitchen.
Starting in the open plan dining and living room, we see in every direction throughout the house via full height glass. Natural wood dining table contrasts with the sleek surroundings.
Viewed in the opposite direction, we see the living room furniture, a set of neutral contemporary sofas and seating on a dark area rug. Monolithic charcoal toned fireplace fills the wall space.
Here in the kitchen, a large wraparound wood countertop over sleek matching cabinetry carves out a cooking space, with full height windows sliding open to connect with the outdoors.
The natural wood panel look continues throughout the kitchen space, including walls, breakfast nook, and built-in shelving.
The raised level within the kitchen overlooks the entire space, vertically divided by the countertops and shelving bookending the breakfast nook. The ceiling mirrors the rich wood tones.
Here’s a close view of the nook, replete with thick white cushioning and matching wood tones on the modernist chairs and table. More sleek, minimalist cabinetry flanks the space.
Moving into the private areas of the home, we get a glimpse of the bedroom, spilling out from the open plan design. Black bedding and charcoal toned headboard plus floating dresser drawer contrast with the brightly hued walls and rich natural hardwood flooring.
The private area contains this opulent natural wood bookshelf and matching table set with cubic seating, creating a unique library space.
We leave you with a view of the project at night, aglow from inside, with a sprinkling a lights scattered throughout the patio and pool area.
