Sherman Oaks
Project Area:
3600 SQ Feet
On Going

The remodel of this Californian bungalow in Sherman Oaks consists of adding a second story addition.  The goal on this project was to create a flowing space plan for the ground floor.  The existing footprint was enlarged and interior wall removed, creating a substantial master suite with sitting room and third floor den with exterior garden and fireplace, thus capturing exterior space as living space. The primary design is a series of undulating ribbons which take an otherwise static box and gives motion to the building elevations.  The twisted volume maximizes the houses foot print while complying with zoning codes.  The roof of the third story den was designed with no visible means of support such that it seemingly floats above the undulating façade below.
