Holmes Residence
2nd Floor Addition to a California Bungalow
Los Angeles, USA | 2006

A second floor was added to a 1925 registered historic California bungalow. The city required that the addition make a minimal impact on the street façade, since bungalows were traditionally only one story. Therefore the concept was to create a contrast between a one-story house in the front, with a two-story house in the back. The only clue from the front of the house is the slightly raised roof on the exterior, and the new stair on the interior.
