RADAR worked with this client on three separate projects for her Silver Lake home. A sweet 1920s cottage was renovated to create modern indoor-outdoor living and a master bedroom suite. RADAR's ingenious plan eliminated redundant circulation and created roominess and connectivity. Next the client wanted to convert her garage to a livable unit. Nicknamed the "Casita" this maintains the 400 sqft footprint of the former 2-car garage. A serene and bright studio takes advantage of the existing hip roof with high ceilings, ample storage space, corner kitchen, and glass doors facing the side and back yards.

To connect these two building projects, RADAR worked with SALT Landscape Architects to re-envision the west side yard into a relaxing and sunny deck, covered by a trellis and metal grid panels for climbing vines. A newly hardscaped backyard provides a convivial space with a custom deep seating bench, Solus fire table and perimeter planting. A new set of entry steps and lush planting at the front yard adds a refreshed frontage, anchored by a billowing Chilean mesquite.
