In this project, we renovated and designed an addition for a family home in the Silverlake district of Los Angeles. Our clients, a film editor and a graphic designer, required home studio space plus additional living space for their growing family. Our strategy involved identifying underutilized spaces in the original plan of the house and filling them in with new cubic volumes, thus retaining the existing square footage while adding a new dining room and bedroom suite. These additions realign the house's program to take greater advantage of its large secluded backyard.
