Home of the Week: Artful aerie in Santa Monica offers abundant options

Built for a sculptor and her businessman husband, this modern structure in downtown Santa Monica is divided into two spaces — one designed for living and one for working.

The downstairs studio/gallery is the stuff of artists’ dreams with two massive workspaces, 30-foot ceilings and private offices. Topping the building is a penthouse that embraces decadent living. A full-length gallery, open formal rooms and a three-sided private balcony that wraps the residence are among the building’s features. An elevator services all floors.
