Surprising Addition to a Small Residence: The House on Kilrenney Avenue

Built in the Cheviot Hills of Los Angeles, California, the House on Kilrenney Avenue is a result of the collaborative efforts of IKONIKO and Becker General Contractors. Constructed using an existing one storey house built in 1960, the residence preserved the existing building’s exterior walls, floor slab and foundations, adding another storey and using contemporary materials to extend the house to suit the resident’s wishes and needs. The front part of the house received a modern appearance, while the backyard was properly extended to offer a space of relaxation. The initial structure of the house served as a base for the design of the residence. 12 feet frameless glass walls surround the living room from three sides, creating a panoramic platform offering views of the surrounding lush vegetation. A wooden platform on the kitchen ceiling hides the ventilation system. The next level of the home shelters the bedrooms and the master bedroom has its own terrace that opens in the backyard, offering the inhabitants a luxurious stress-free retreat.
