Silverlake Home & Studio

  • About the project
    Los Angeles, CA

    Originally a 1920’s duplex, this Silverlake home was remodeled and converted by a contractor into a single family residence. Working with the homeowners to personalize the space, we transformed a lackluster reno into a stylish family-friendly retreat.

    Because the home sits at the back of the deep lot, we borrowed from the ample front yard to create an area perfect for outdoor entertaining.  The unused garage became a recording studio and office specifically designed for the client, a composer and music producer. In the kitchen, foil melamine cabinets and pitted travertine counters were traded for a sleeker, modern look with high-gloss cabinetry and sparkling quartz counters.

    Ecologically sensitive materials such as cork flooring, quartz countertops, FLOR carpet tiles, renewable cabinetry, and low-VOC paints were selected keeping both the environment and indoor air quality in mind. Natural fibers like seagrass and jute come together with restored vintage pieces, bright airy colors, and a touch of glamour to create a chic, bohemian nest perfect for a young family.
