The new Venice home of architect and Electroland Principal Cameron McNall is an extraordinary light-filled design experience wrapped in an innovative 3,000. sq.ft. facade of decorative computer-cut metallic flowers. The house is perfectly situated 1.9 miles from the beach in the west-Washington area, within walking distance of every required service or amenity. The 110-foot facade surrounds two sides of the building to create privacy, frame views, and generate provocative light effects. Each tall-ceilinged room displays a unique quality of light, shape, and distinct personality. The impressive architecture, high-quality construction and attention to fine detail are exceptional. This boutique house is built to City of Los Angeles “Green Building” standards.
4016 Tivoli is a personal expression of design influences spanning a lifetime in art and design. The architect has carefully curated and/or designed all furniture, artwork and objects to create a complete work of art.
Architect's statement: "I designed 4016 Tivoli for my family as a total design living experience that represents my relationship to art, architecture and design. Although I was just a child when I lived in California in the sixties, I was very influenced by the energy and graphics of that period, everything from Warhol to the Mexico '68 Olympics to Fillmore West concert flyers. I spent my teenage years in Europe, during which time I gained a deeper understanding of and respect for architecture, and became enamored with the discipline of German/Swiss design and the humor of Italian design. Most particularly, I adopted the Italian philosophy of design “dal cucchiaio alla città” (from the spoon to the city), where the architect applies a unified design philosophy and creativity to everything from small objects to environments. The result is "total design"- you see it, live it and feel it. When people walk by the house or visit inside, I am pleased that it elicits a smile and a contagious happiness. Now you know my secrets."
