A 1930s Ranch Transforms for Southern California Contemporary Living

A 1930s Ranch Transforms for Southern California Contemporary Living

What was once a dated 1930s ranch in Los Angeles’ Los Feliz neighborhood has emerged as a beacon of California contemporary luxury, thanks to the visionary collaboration between Klein Agency and SITU Development. Originally dealing with a failing foundation, lime green walls, a closed-off kitchen, small windows, and cramped spaces, the transformation began with the idea to elevate the property that was yearning for modernity. After upgrading the foundation, the designers reimagined the home’s layout in order to maximize both space and functionality. The footprint was expanded, adding two additional bedrooms, an interior courtyard, and a deck with a pool resulting in sprawling views of the San Gabriel Mountains.
