CRAFTSMAN COTTAGE

The fully-restored 1914 Craftsman-style bungalow next door to the main building, connected by lovely courtyard and arbor spaces, provides additional classrooms and meeting areas.

Sanctuary

THE SANCTUARY

To those hosting a large gathering we offer our charming Mission Revival sanctuary, designed in the 1920s by noted Santa Monica architect, John Byers.  It features a high vaulted ceiling, original exposed beamwork, old oak floors and scrupulously-inclusive iconography.  The sanctuary can hold more than 200 of your guests in a simultaneously intimate and ample setting, and a Steinway grand piano is available for your use.

THE COURTYARD

Outside the sanctuary you’ll find terraced courtyards on two sides, with classic Saltillo tiles to the east and cobblestone-pattern pavers bridging northward into our fully-enclosed outdoor space.  With some areas tree-shaded, others canopied, and still others open-air, our exterior campus forms a series of outdoor rooms for break-out space, or for al fresco dining, or for your outdoor reception.

Play Yard Finally, tucked behind our historic, fully-renovated 1914 Craftsman Bungalow you’ll find a Zen-garden-themed children’s play area, with available nursery staff to help keep the little ones occupied while you host your event.
