Designed by Minarc for a couple in Santa Monica, the Dawnsknoll residence was built using mnmMOD, a system of prefabricated panels that are recyclable, fire- and termite-proof, and efficient. With the structural panels built ahead of time at the factory, this residence was completed in less than a year. The 2,400-square-foot home champions an indoor-outdoor lifestyle with expansive windows that frame views of the outdoor kitchen and pool. Visitors of Dwell on Design's West Side Home Tour will have the opportunity to see Dawnsknoll firsthand.
