Natural & Earthly
THE OWNERS OF A NEWLY-constructed home in Santa Monica had one primary requirement; they wanted a house that was going to be easy to take care of. “They wanted something clean and minimalist and not fussy,” said Norm Wogan, the Los Angeles-based interior designer who was enlisted to work on the house. Work on the 7,500 square foot home was completed in March 2020. Architect Dean Larkin created the contemporary style house, alongside builder Asher Alsasi and landscape designer Serena Kelmes. The team worked first on building a long swimming pool and then constructed the house to convey the illusion of the water moving into the home.
