Design, Bitches has designed B+B House in California, USA.

This project is located in Venice, California – a Los Angeles beachside neighbourhood known for iconic beach bungalows built at the turn of the 20th century and architectural experimentation.

This specific site is nestled on the edge of the famous "walk streets" of Venice where small lots are tightly woven together as the city stretches to the Pacific Ocean. By maintaining the integrity and proportion of the traditional Venice Beach bungalow and adding a bar slide through it, the B+B House makes an argument for the resilience of archetypes – playing out juxtaposition in a small house that speaks to both modernist volumes and ways of life.

B+B House was built for a small creative extended family who work in various industries and has a constant flux of extended family and friends that flow in and out of town regularly.

This project has been longlisted in the urban house category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
