Fall Salon at Award-Winning Mid-Century Home

Saturday, Oct 10, 2015, 4 – 6 pm

We are pleased to invite you to explore the renovation and expansion of a rare Santa Monica mid-century home at the Conservancy’s Annual Salon on Saturday, October 10, from 4 to 6 pm.

The Vukadinovich residence received a Preservation Award from the Santa Monica Conservancy this year, and was featured in a recent Dwell on Design tour.  Designed in 1950 by Frederick Monhoff, the house contains classic International Style features, along with architectural innovations such as angular walls and ceilings.

At the time of the Vukadinovich purchase in 2008, the home was deteriorated but intact, as the original owner/builder had lived in it until 2006.  The Vukadinoviches selected Abeer Sweis of Synthesis as their designer-builder to restore the house, include renovations in the spirit of Monhoff, and add on a new wing for their family’s needs.
