Since 1994, Arcolution has worked on scores of projects: single family residential, multi-family housing, shelters, retail, commercial, and industrial. Because each project is unique, the approach and response to every project is singular. We care about the site and context, materials of construction, light and air, and always, the functional requirements of the owners and users. Every project is a dialogue among these elements, and we relish this co-creative collaboration.
Here are a few of our projects:
Karsten House, Pacific Palisades, California
This re-model transformed the house into a light, modern and attractive space.
This young couple desired to add a partial second floor over their beautiful mid-town, spanish style, one-story home. The addition included a two story space with staircase and balcony, new master bedroom suite and secondary bedroom for their pre-schooler.
Writer’s retreat in Laurel Canyon
This home is located in the woodsy hillside area off Laurel Canyon. The owner desired to add an accessory building as a writing loft at the rear of the property.
Accessory Dwelling Unit Project – City of Santa Cruz, California.
The architect was chosen as one of six firms to design prototype accessory dwelling unit structures for the City of Santa Cruz pilot housing program.
Patterson Residence, Big Rock Canyon, Malibu, California.
A rebuild from the 1994 Malibu fires, this project was permitted in mid-2000 and commenced construction in late summer. A 4,300 sq.ft. single family residence overlooking the Pacific Ocean with 180 degree plus views, it is a four bedroom, five level home cascading down a steep site off Big Rock Canyon.
Marrakesh House Culver City, California This re-model was inspired by Moroccan design and largely powered by solar energy, Marrakesh House is a 21st century green residence owned by filmmaker Chris Paine (Who Killed the Electric Car?).
