Award-winning design studio Minarc completed the 'Rainbow House,' a beautiful Santa Monica home for a family.

The company states, "Each project shares an emphasis on the blurring of distinction between interior and exterior spaces through the exploitation of natural light, creation of outdoor living rooms, and artistically framed views of nature." This objective is clearly met in the Rainbow House through the use of floor-to-ceiling windows and double-height spaces. The upper level is a box-shaped volume that cantilevers over the ground floor, which is characterized by its sliding glass doors and windows.

Inside, the home is optimized for spatial needs and decorated with sleek statement piece furniture, such as the incredibly large, block-shaped kitchen island.
