The Egan residence is a 541 square foot addition to a home in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. The existing Spanish-style house was comprised of small rooms that separated the living spaces from the backyard. We retained as much as possible of the existing house to maximize the modest budget, focusing the addition to the rear of the house to create a connection between the living spaces and garden / pool. The addition is comprised of a large open plan kitchen, living room and dining room with vaulted ceilings and a new master suite, which opens onto a private view-garden.
