Building a house in Los Angeles is not as easy as it might be in other cities. Here the costs are usually bigger. The foundation itself sometimes cost up to 20%-25% of the total project’s cost. If you want to avoid this inconvenience a good idea would be to use the foundation of an already existing house. That’s the case for this particular residence. The house was built on the structure of another house that was already on the site. Everything else is new and modern. The existing structure was re-designed and a third floor was also added to the house.

The rooms were reorganized and redefined. These spaces have been structured into life spaces, which are the bedrooms and the living rooms, work spaces, consisting of areas like a home office for example, the kitchen as a single unit, the embedded pool bathroom and last, but not least, the underground support spaces. In addition, there’s also a loose-slung, a space designed for storage and, of course, the outdoor area.{found on archdaily and pics by Eric Staudenmeier}
