Richard Katkov and Miriam Mulder, a husband-and-wife architectural team struggling to establish a practice in a studio behind their modest Mar Vista house, are a couple of the '90s. But they find the experience of living and working together "almost medieval." "One thin door separates home and office," Mulder said, "just as, in the Middle Ages, families lived behind the workshop. This arrangement, I feel, eliminates the schizophrenia between home life and work life that most people suffer today."

WITH ITS sleek, uncluttered rooms and breathtaking view of the Santa Monica Bay, this Marina del Rey condominium inspires a Zenlike tranquillity. A 100-year-old armoire stands against a seal-gray wall; a Cape Dutch table of Oregon pine relates comfortably to the slick concrete floor. Blending peacefully with black leather and blued-steel, antique wood furnishings bring a feeling of stability and warmth to the minimalist Japanese aesthetic.

Two young architects have reached back into Greek mythology and played games with geometry to enliven a new house in Venice. Working with a creative couple on a tight budget, Miriam Mulder and Richard Katkov, who formed Mulder-Katkov in 1986, sought their inspiration from the myth of Pegasus, the winged horse that rose from the body of Medusa and later kicked over the fountain of the Muses. The result: an exciting residence rather than a plain stucco box.

For a child lucky enough to have one, a playhouse is an ideal home for the imagination. Fortress, clubhouse, schooner, stage: It changes roles at the whim of youngsters steeped in the spirit of invention.

THE CHAIR, a French provincial reproduction by Rose Tarlow labeled "Tumbleweed Armchair With Rush Seat," sits amid the eclectic extravagance of the Randolph & Hein showroom on the third floor of the Pacific Design Center. But, as Ken Cinnamon and his wife, Karen Wengrod, stand contemplating it this particular Monday morning, they are envisioning it in the corner of the living room of their new three-bedroom home in Sherman Oaks. At the moment, the chair, a fanciful creation with a hand-painted, weathered-lacquer finish decorated with a dizzying display of rust-and-gold cross-hatching, is posing for a Polaroid, as the couple and their decorator, Frank Keshishian, study it admiringly.
