2522 Aiken Ave
Los Angeles, CA
2522 Aiken Ave brings bold forms and new life to an original 1930s bungalow. The remodeled structure provides 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms in an open floor plan. Sail-like steel/wood louver screens serve as a focal point for the street facade, providing guardrail protection and a visual buffer for the second floor deck behind. A double-height atrium for the kitchen/dining area forms the heart of the interior, and bright, expansively-glazed living spaces draw in the outdoors on every level. At the back, the house hovers above the rear-sloping lot and wraps around a mature Ash, creating a tree house-like effect for adjacent spaces and welcome shade for the pool and yard. A 3-level structure, the new house provides views of Rancho Park Golf Course, Century City, and the Santa Monica Mountains from the upper levels.
Construction for 2522 Aiken completed in summer 2019, under the direction of 10-19 Architecture.
