Kappe On the Un-Kappe Kappe

Ray Kappe tells Beach magazine how his Manhattan Beach Scheimer Residence, which just sold last week, ended up looking like a yacht: "In this case I was responding to the client’s programmatic needs, the site and its constraints and opportunities. The Strand is approximately one story below the street, which creates the section of the house, along with the programmatic issues and the height limit....The desire for a pool at the roof level set up a special structural dynamic, concrete for the rear portion of the house and steel for the front portion. The preference for a circular living area established the form." He always explains how the house ended up stuccoed. Photos are here. [Beach Magazine]
