This comprehensive addition & renovation to an existing residential property enhances the existing utilitarian floor plan with a clerestory roof accentuating the spacious views to the canyon beyond. Tactical design alterations to the main house are bracketed by the addition of new guest wing and extended wood terrace creating a "courtyard" residence made up of multiple functions. The Landscape Design by Kathleen Ferguson Landscapes completes the attention to detail at every scale of the property.
These two challenging hillside parcels were conventionally unbuildable as a city storm sewer easement traverses the canyon section of the property. With a nod to several dramatic precedents, this proposal literally joins the two properties by bridging them from side to side with an 85 foot pratt truss. A lap pool with canyon vistas as well as a garden roof terrace take full advantage of the recreational landscape in which the project is sited. Currently in development.
The Scout and Jem Residences are situated high above Occidental Boulevard. The brother and sister houses share a common stairway that scales organically up the verdant hillside. Designed to follow the natural topography rather than the city grid, both the male and female homes access unobstructed views of Los Angeles, while maintaining privacy from neighbors and maximizing southern exposure. Inspired by Silver Lake’s modern architectural heritage, Fung+Blatt provide a perfectly balanced indoor/outdoor living experience, connecting residents from their home to the land in a communal garden setting.
