The airy, pitched-roof design of this Santa Monica modern, a collaborative effort by architect Buzz Yudell and his wife, architectural colorist Tina Beebe, serves as a passive cooling system while drenching the interiors in natural light. Bridging the master retreat and other studio areas, a large walkway adds a gallery-like effect.
