An existing 1920s Echo Park 2-bedroom, 2-bath bungalow was expanded into a 3-bedroom, 3-bath estate. The original building's facade and street presence were carefully preserved and a hyper-modern back-half joined to it, as if in a diptych. Two master bedroom suites open onto a cantilevered deck and garden level. A roof deck with a panoramic view is accessed via an exterior glass stair.
