One of our first projects in Laurel Canyon in the Hollywood Hills. The existing midcentury house was remodeled, and we added a new 500 sf building volume along the side of the existing structure. The roof of this new linear building volume extends towards the rear yard to create a covered patio. A custom poured in place concrete BBQ counter continues the line of the covered patio back wall and doubles in function as a rainwater planter that collects all runoff from the new roof area.
