This unusual design of the Walnut Residence embodying unique perforations is definitely an eye-catcher. Located in Venice, California, the home was completed by Modal Design. The structure has a unique exterior that is edgy and eclectic, transforming a home into a piece of art.

The home's "skin" is made of cor-ten steel, which evokes a gritty aesthetic, and defines the character of the building.

“This project mediates the poetics of light and architectural form against technological and ecological demands of contemporary building practices. By integrating traditional design methodologies with CNC fabrication, the distance between architect and builder is collapsed to allow for maximum control in articulating the porosity of the building’s cor-ten skin as it negotiates between public and private space.”
