The Sugar Shack



To paraphrase Mies van der Rohe, “Less... very less... is more.”  With a schedule of only ten days, Manheim and Cercone turned a 900 square foot Malibu bungalow--untouched since its construction in 1946—into their favorite personal residence. Improvements included a new kitchen and master bath, refinished floors and installation of lighting and wainscoting. Outside, lattice and pergolas turned a parking lot into a landscaped courtyard and a stairway landing into an outdoor dining room.

The Sugar Shack was eventually demolished to make way for The Sandcastle.
