Marsh Residence & Studio
(# 138)
Images Description Credits


Dean Nota has achieved international standing as a designer of beautiful and meticulous buildings that inventively translate modernist ideals into a regional, light- and space- oriented architecture.  The Marsh Studio – Residence represents the foundation of his body of work.

25 Years:

With this first solo commission, Nota formulated a personal architectural strategy in a solution for a tiny, triangular infill site in a coastal suburb of Los Angeles.  The house, designed as a twelve hundred square foot, live–work space for artist Peggy Marsh, immediately received recognition with design awards from the AIA Los Angeles, AIA California Council and the AIA/Sunset Western Home Awards programs.  Jury members praised the project as a “sensible strategy for the collage urbanism that surrounds the house” and part of a “new regionalism.”  This seminal project has informed all of Nota’s subsequent work over a 25-year period.
