Name: Warren Techentin and Mimi Techentin
Location: Los Feliz, California
Size: 3600 Square Feet
Years lived in: 4 years

When I visit an architect's home, I sometimes find it to be an untouchable piece of art. However, Warren and Mimi's lovely home was very welcoming and showed signs of life and children really enjoying the space. I asked Warren how he kept the twin babies from not pulling all the books off the shelves or trying to climb the library ladder. He just shrugged it off to the notion of "that's just what kids do." Nothing in the home is too precious or fragile to restrict living and enjoying the home to the fullest.
