Please join us for a tour and talk with the architect Wonne Ickx and Jessica Fleischmann.

The project consists of a complete remodel and extension of a 1920’s bungalow on a sloped plot in the Echo Park area of Los Angeles. As it was one of the first houses on the block, PRODUCTORA and Fleischmann decided to maintain as much as they could of its original character since they considered the typology interesting in relation to the site’s context and history.

The existing crawl space underneath the front of the house was excavated to augment the total square footage of the property. Towards the back, a steel moment frame was added to the house in order to create a transitional space between the house and the garden, and to protect the rear facade from afternoon sun. In its interior, the new central staircase with a distinct saw-tooth profile frankly connects the upper and lower level with each other.

The new grid-like structure (painted in deep evening blue) and the existing bungalow (with siding and window framing rendered in a dusty sunset pinkish tint) establish a strong contrast. They juxtapose two different moments in time: each one with its own constructive logic, material, and color code. Four of the six cubic squares of this addition are covered terraces, while two are interior spaces incorporated into the kitchen area (lower level) and the master bedroom (upper level).
