Inside SCI-Arc


Alumna Home Featured in the LA Times

The Venice, CA home of alumna Lisa Little (M.Arch ‘06) was recently featured in the Home section of the Los Angeles Times. When Little was a graduate student at SCI-Arc, she and husband Phil Brennan purchased a small beach lot that came with two small houses: a 850-square-foot bungalow dating back in 1905 and a 450-square-foot rental built in 1912. They decided to keep the existent structures and integrate them into one home, while at the same time "creating a space that felt larger than it was."

A few years later, and with help from designers Victoria Yust and Ian McIlvaine, Little and Brennan are now proud of their colorful, period-facade Chartreuse House—where beach bungalow meets modern. Little's home was also recently included in the Venice Home Tours organized by the AIA Los Angeles. Little is co-founder—together with Emily White (M.Arch2 '06)—of the Los Angeles-based firm Layer.
