The Latimer Project

For the first half of the video, Dean walks Bobby, and his viewers, through one of his favorite projects, featured last year in California Homes. As they tour the home, Dean shares behind-the-scenes details and fascinating insights about the design process and the big and small details that make the home a dream come true for the homeowners: like kitchen storage drawers that are deeper than they seem because he “borrowed” some space inside the wall. Dean also shares his philosophy that “Every client deserves a custom home. And a home that fits only that site and at that precise moment.”

Those who are familiar with Dean Larkin’s projects know that light and water are integral parts of his designs. In the interview he shares why water is so important noting that he has fond memories of water in his childhood and that they always had a waterfall, “so water was very, very important, and the sound of water is very important to me.
