10 years ahead of their time, the Brooks Street Lofts were forerunners of the Loft Living movement in Los Angeles. In the heart of artistic Venice, the goal was to create spaces that provide a neutral canvas with no limits to the vibrant creativity of the inhabitants. Large skylights maximize both wall space and daylight, creating an intriguing suspense between sheltered introversion and the tangible connection to the bustling Boardwalk life below.
