The Bricaults say they didn't have a huge wish list when designing the addition other than asking Marc to make the addition "neighbor-friendly" and to give them a roof garden. Their connection to pedestrians and passersby extends to the alley, where strangers often stop to thank Paul and Cicek for beautifying an otherwise neglected thoroughfare.
"It was a gesture from Marc to create a pretty thing for people to look at," she says.
The Bricault home is one of 31 properties open to the public on May 1 on the Venice Garden & Home Tour. Gardens on the ground level and roof and portions of the Bricault home are included on the tour, which benefits the Neighborhood Youth Assn.'s Las Doradas Children's Center.
