Los Angeles, CA
This Los Feliz residence involves the historic preservation, interior restoration and library addition to a Wallace Neff home built in the 1920s. Work included the interior renovation of the family room and a carefully designed palette of hardscape, giving reason to further enjoy the southern California climate.
The new two-story library and garage is recognizable by its most distinct feature: a metal screen façade. The screen panels are made of bronze anodized aluminum – water jet cut for a precise and patterned variable apertures, referencing the original home’s precast concrete window grilles. Although this is a contemporary design for the historic site, the building’s form and exterior materials match the historic home.
