David Hertz's McKinley House on the LA Design Fest West Side Home Tour

Edible Skinny was lucky enough to attend the Los Angeles Design Festival and we saw some of the most visually stunning homes West of the 405 on their West Side Home Tour.  
One of these houses was the Venice located McKinley House by David Hertz, which is also his family home. 

The house was designed in two phases.  The first featured two separate volumes connected by a bridge.  Some years later the lot next door became available making the compound into four discrete two-story buildings linked by three enclosed bridges that all face onto the courtyard.

The building is a case for green building techniques.  Materials include an array of 20 solar collector panels on the roof and recycled and FSC certified sustainable woods.  

Here’s to life being green and delicious!
