Located just outside of downtown Los Angeles, in the little-known neighborhood of Hermon, a 1920s bungalow has been given a modern facelift by architect Martin Fenlon. Through a major remodel, the dilapidated original home now has a new addition on the front of the house that, while being nested closely with the original structure, is also remarkably different. The boxy clear cedar-clad addition contrasts with the original torched cedar of the rest of the structure while integrating with the front yard through a series of terraces which form steps and a long bench at the front of the house.
