A friendly perimeter wall, a gate, and a large jacaranda tree were added to provide privacy and shade for the street level of this overly exposed modern 2-story construction.
View Down to Courtyard
To extend the ground-level living and kitchen area, we transformed the front courtyard into a private outdoor dining and lounging area, complete with koi pond and water lily garden.
View from Living Room
Additional privacy for the interior living room was afforded by a strategically placed outside palisade of rich mahogany-like wood, which also augmented the clean lines of the Asian Modern construction of the house.
This uninspired area of the home became magical with a fenced-in virtual “Venice Beach” playground for the kids, featuring a large, deep sandbox and potted palms.
