Martin Fenlon breathes new life into a dilapidated 1920s Los Angeles bungalow
Located just outside of downtown Los Angeles , in the little-known neighborhood of Hermon, a 1920s bungalow has been given a modern facelift by architect Martin Fenlon . Through a major remodel, the dilapidated original home now has a new addition that, while being nested closely with the original structure, is also remarkably different. The boxy clear-cedar-clad addition contrasts with the original torched cedar of the rest of the structure while integrating with the front yard through a series of terraces which form steps and a long bench at the front of the house.
