Now available for rent, this three-bedroom two-bath house, known as the 1+3=1 House in Venice, was designed by LOC Architect's Ali Jeevanjee and two other SCI-Arc grads: Steffen Leisner and Phillip Trigas. The house has been written up in just about every architecture journal, as well as the LA Times and the Chicago Tribune. The architects tripled the size of 970 square foot bungalow on a small lot, adding three multistory structures around the existing bungalow. Using inexpensive materials, the addition cost about $700,000. The house features a Wolf stove, Subzero fridge, TOTO toilets, a black bottom salt water pool, and a built in theater system. It is available for rent nightly, weekly, or monthly, with a discounted rate for six month leases or more, and includes cleaning and laundry service for monthly and weekly stays. The house sleeps up to six people, and can accommodate more with convertible sofas (for an extra fee per day). And it doesn't come cheap. The owners are charging $890 per night with a four night minimum, or $4,750 per week, or $14,995 per month. The house requires a $2,500 deposit at booking, cancellations must be made 30 days in advance, and there's a $500 cancellation fee. For stays less than 30 days, there's also a 14% bed tax. That is a lotta scratch to stay in this house.
