Home of the Week: Reinventing a 1920s-era home in Silver Lake
The modern bungalow, designed by architect Martin Fenlon.
Architect Martin Fenlon utilized the original structure of a 1920s Spanish bungalow when creating the modern Silver Lake residence.
Listed for $1.65 million, the multi-level house has open-plan living spaces, skylights and decking that extend the living space outdoors.
An original Batchelder tile fireplace was retained in the living room.
A lower level was converted into the master suite, which opens to its own deck.
The Silver Lake home.
Twin palm trees frame the entrance to this Silver Lake residence, which has been reimagined as a contemporary bungalow by architect Martin Fenlon. The fresh design utilizes the original footprint of a 1920s Spanish-style home while extending outward with a series of large decks. A collection of skylights arranged in the pattern of the constellation Cancer bring natural light into the newly opened interior.
