The Santa Monica Conservancy will host its annual Salon fundraiser on Saturday, June 10, from 3 – 5 pm at LivingHomes’ first prefabricated modular home in Santa Monica. Guests will enjoy a talk by owner Steve Glenn, founder and Managing Director of LivingHomes, wine and delicious hors d’oeuvres, plus a tour of the spectacular house.
Glenn’s contemporary 4-bedroom, 2.5 bath home, designed by renowned architect Ray Kappe, FAIA, was the first in the nation to achieve LEED Platinum. It was installed on-site in only 8 hours in 2006, and has been featured in Dwell magazine.
LivingHomes is a designer and developer of modern, prefabricated single- and multi-family homes that combine world-class architecture with an unparalleled commitment to healthy and sustainable construction. The firm utilizes built-in furniture, environmentally conscious materials, and rooftop solar systems. Since the building of this first LivingHome, the firm has built more LEED Platinum homes than any other design firm in the U.S. This year, LivingHomes was a grand prize winner in the annual Sustainable Quality Awards given by the City of Santa Monica, the Santa Monica Chamber of Commerce and Sustainable Works.
Proceeds from the Salon benefit the Conservancy’s educational programs. Tickets are $150 for members; $175 for non-members; and complimentary for those who join or upgrade to our Leadership Circle. Purchase online by June 5.
