  • This single story, 80s inspired home quickly became a labor of love for the dasMOD Founders, Erik Gilmer and Sven Simon. The duo stumbled upon 2222 Via Tiempo, when looking for homes to repurpose that weren’t totally perfect but also not in shambles.

    A modern mix of unpretentious, yet luxurious design elements resulted in an awe-inspiring, sophisticated and lighthearted living space with a seamless transition between indoors and out.

    Modern home with Living Room, Chair, Coffee Tables, Ceiling Lighting, Porcelain Tile Floor, Pendant Lighting, Recessed Lighting, Corner Fireplace, and Gas Burning Fireplace. The extraordinary high ceilings and volume contributes to its welcome feeling. The public areas of the house, such as the kitchen, dining, living, and entertaining areas open up towards the backyard with sit-down white-water ocean views beyond. The main living wall disappears with the use of La Cantina pocket door, creating an 18’ foot-wide opening. The front door entry, on the opposite side of the home also incorporates a La Cantina pocket door allowing the ocean breeze to flow straight through the house.
