Ara Katz, a tech entrepreneur/film producer/artist, and her partner, Chris Ovitz, also a serial entrepreneur, were Venice Beach loft stalkers when they discovered a two-level condo in the light-filled AK Live/Work building on Abbott Kinney, designed by Michael Sant in 2006. Working with designer Taylor Jacobson , Ara orchestrated the interiors while juggling her job at a start-up and doing her own studio work.
