The motto at The Big House is "Don't move, improve."
The Big House is a 100-year old craftsman home in south Los Angeles and home to nonprofit Nuevo South. It’s a modern example of a powerful phenomenon: the use of a private home as a community space. We teamed up with our friends at Nest and interior designer Casey Keasler to reimagine The Big House. We sanded, painted, brought in new design elements, and installed Nest products to help keep The Big House comfortable and secure, all with the goal of inspiring youth in this neighborhood to dream big.
