West Los Angeles 2 Residence
This West Los Angeles home has been remade by its owners and their uniquely talented friends who have had long careers in film production and set design. Behind the dramatic exterior color of the house is a colorful interior with many artistic details and lots of natural light. It's wonderful to have clients who bring an adventurous spirit to our collaboration.
The house sits on a sloped, triangular lot that juts out into the neighborhood like the prow of a ship. The fenced and screened backyard provides all the privacy the family needs. The front yard is the open, public-facing side of the property, where neighbors are often seen walking dogs and greeting each other on the sidewalk. The mature trees were kept in place and the struggling and unused front lawn was replaced with a vibrant mixture of flowering, low-water-use perennials.
These three images provide a glimpse into the design process. After reviewing various concepts with the clients, and based upon their feedback, we produced a rendering to show our design intent. The final image shows the newly installed landscaping, including the new garden walls. The plants will continue to grow and fill in over time.
