Located in Culver City, the project is a modern addition and complete interior renovation for an existing 1944 bungalow. The addition strengthens the connection between old and new by maintaining the 3:12 prevailing roof slope of the existing house, and by being entirely skinned in asphalt roofing shingles, which anchors the addition to the area’s vernacular materiality while projecting a uniquely contemporary identity. The project culminates in the master bedroom’s expansive rear window, formed of aluminum-clad plate steel, which cantilevers above a quietly bubbling pool of water.
The project received a Residential Architecture Citation Award from the AIA/Los Angeles in 2017.
