While revamping a 1950s house in the Los Angeles neighbourhood of Los Feliz, local design practice And And And Studio paid tribute to the original architecture while integrating fresh, contemporary design elements.

Designed by architects Johnston & D’Agostino in 1953, the home embodies the classic mid-century architecture of the relaxed hillside neighbourhood, presenting an opportunity to celebrate the location and era. And And And Studio principals Daniel Rabin and Annie Ritz led the project and were tasked with revisiting the home’s layout and injecting the interiors with warmth and character.

The pair approached Los Feliz like they do each of their projects – not distinguishing between architecture and interiors, instead letting both naturally inform one another. Through this holistic approach, they have embraced the client’s goal for a family-friendly yet subtly glamorous Californian abode.

What first caught the eye of Daniel and Annie was the home’s structure – in particular, its distinctive single-storey profile and clerestory glass windows in the living room. With these key features as their starting point, the pair set out to seamlessly blend the old with the new. “We wanted to retain the home’s original character while introducing new elements that begged the question, ‘Is this old or new?’” Annie says. One of the most notable additions to the build include the traditional pour-in-place terrazzo floors, which took 20-some samples to perfect.

The home’s furniture selection includes notable pieces such as the vintage B&B Italia Camaleonda sofa and Carl Hansen & Søn daybed in the living room, which rest upon a rust-coloured Armadillo rug. At the same time, eminent lighting brands like Flos, Vitra and Louis Poulsen illuminate the spaces, while artworks from the owner’s personal collection add an eclectic, lived-in feel to the interiors.
