NICHOL’S CANYON RESIDENCE
PROJECT: 2600 sf renovation + addition
LOCATION: Los Angeles, California
COMPLETION: Fall 2013
A 1950’s ranch house in the Hollywood Hills is given new life. The house was demolished down to the wood studs and completely reconfigured with a new floor plan and steel exoskeleton. The use of steel was twofold: to bring the structure up to current seismic code, and to evoke an aesthetic merging 50’s modernism with a more refined industrial detailing a la Pierre Chareau.
