Curson breaks all the traditional concepts of building with angled walls and disappearing pocket doors, while incorporating the Ancient Roman atrium, a large, open space located within a building, into a modern context.

Prime Five Homes’ newest project is a futuristic model for residential housing in California. Around the corner from the designer boutiques and celebrity-dotted dining hot spots of Melrose Ave, Curson is a template for what buyers should crave in their next home. Curson breaks all the traditional concepts of building with angled walls and disappearing pocket doors, while incorporating the Ancient Roman atrium, a large, open space located within a building, into a modern context. Curson is Prime Five Homes’ magnum opus.

During the recession, many developers closed their businesses in Los Angeles and moved to other cities or states. When Mayer Dahan took over Prime Five Homes as CEO in 2010, he possessed a dedication and faith in his city that many others didn’t. By innovatively adapting into a full-service, luxurious, eco-friendly residential builder, Prime Five Homes created a niche market for itself to thrive. Since then, Prime Five Homes has stayed ahead of the competition and directed the market into a new age of design, architecture, and development in California.

What sets Curson apart from all the other modern homes?
Angled walls - as land is a valuable commodity in Los Angeles, Cursons’ floor plan was designed to make the most of every square inch of space. To achieve this, Mayer built Curson on an angle which opens up the home’s interior and makes the most of the lot. Although this made construction and hardware much more difficult, the result is a monumental building that captures natural light and makes you feel like you live in a modern day castle.

Pocket doors and a disappearing corner - a pocket door is a sliding door that disappears, in a hidden compartment, in an adjacent wall. Traditionally used for internal walls, Mayer has taken this concept and applied it to Cursons’ exterior, glass sliding doors, as well as one of the corners that separates the kitchen and backyard. The result is a seamless transition between the interior and exterior of the building, creating unity and openness that’s ideal for a positively-energized space.

Atrium - a large, open space located within a building, an atrium is a popular design feature to create a sense of light and space. Commonly used in commercial environments, Mayer has applied this concept to the residential architecture of Curson. In the middle of the home, a courtyard has been built with decking, landscaping, and a large gas fireplace. Offering homeowners with another private, outdoor dining option, the atrium is ideal in a climate like California.

Eco-friendly consciousness - the preservation of our environment relies on builders and homeowners being conscious of their impact on Mother Nature. Prime Five Homes incorporates a number of eco-friendly features into each project, including solar panels, custom water capture systems, drought-resistant landscaping, low-flow faucets and toilets, energy-efficient fixtures, centralized smart home technologies, and a recycle/reuse philosophy during demolition.

Prime Five Homes is dedicated to building homes that customers not only want, but what they also need to survive changing trends, evolving technologies, and an ever-changing environment. It is this passion for building and dedication to humanity that cannot be replicated by copycat developers, and that makes Prime Five Homes unique.
