Dean Larkin Architectural Design Project Makes California Homes Cover

September 30, 2021- Los Angeles, California – Dean Larkin Design is pleased to announce that one of their architectural design projects is being featured on the cover of California Homes Magazine. The September-October issue is being released this week and will feature a minimalist project by designer Norm Wogan, architect Dean Larkin Design and landscape designer Serna Kelmes.

The design pays homage to Kappe, Ellwood and Neutra and celebrates the architectural history of the canyon. The clients have a very active lifestyle and wanted their home to be an oasis. In order to create a sense of privacy, a “lake” was created with poured concrete walls that are arranged to separate the public and private areas of the house. Visitors must cross stepstone pads on the “lake” to get to the glass entry.


A few of the design highlights are

  • Lap pool entry from the home’s primary bathroom
  • The main powder room has a front glass wall with a water curtain for privacy
  • Natural walnut cabinetry
  • Aged oak floors and ceilings
