Modern Marvels: This Shell-Inspired Venice Beach Home Is a Dream

Beloved architect Mario Romano just unveiled another contemporary home that “truly blurs the line between form and function.” His newest design listing, located at 1227 Preston Way in Venice Beach, rivals his dramatic Wave Home, a structure that recalls “slopes for skateboards or snowboards—inspiration for which is not lacking in Venice.”

Similar to the famed Wave Home, this shell-shaped home pays homage to nearby natural elements. The modernist home recalls the inescapable ebb and flow of the city’s ocean waves by taking the form on a shell. Curious? Read on to learn more about Mario Romano’s newest California coastal property, which is currently for sale.

Experience Modern Venice Beach Living

Durley Park has come a long way in the past couple decades. In the late 90s, the Venice Beach neighborhood was known as working-class area filled with “pastel-colored houses and bungalows, and streets named after trees like birch and cedar.” Today, the highly desirable Durley Park neighborhood is home to some of the city’s modernist trophy homes, including Romano’s shell-shaped structure.

The shell-shaped home occupies a coveted 10,000 plus square foot lot in the prime Durley Park location in Venice Beach. As you approach the 5,700 square foot home, marvel at the home’s stunning, ultra-modern shape that mirrors its surroundings. As light plays on the home’s textured aluminum facade looks, you feel a natural pull toward the ocean. But resist that pull, for now, and step inside to learn more about this modernist home instead.
