Third Floor Apartment
Los Angeles, California
Completed 2013

An apartment with mostly Northern exposure was demolished down to its structural elements and perimeter of clear anodized aluminum windows; we repeated the aluminum by introducing a series of pocket doors and interior windows with white glass panels in varying degrees of transparency, bringing natural light into formerly dark interior spaces. The new floor plan enlarges the primary entertaining zones, and creates a clean backdrop for ever-changing art installations. The floors are wide planks of reclaimed oak that only align to the central spine of the apartment.
