Featured on Interior Design Homes, this contemporary house was a collaboration between Abramson Architects, Magni Kalman Design, and MODAA Construction. The story goes back at least 15 years when Trevor Abramson and James Magni renovated the client's former home. Trevor and the owner, both South African-born transplants to Los Angeles, had met "through the grapevine".
The two-phased renovation focused on creating a more open ground-level configuration while adding a second level volume housing a luxurious bed-bath-office suite. "Step through that louvred, Douglas fir entry door for a delightful surprise. An expansive courtyard stands as the literal and figurative heart of the house as well as the renovation’s linchpin."
