WALNUT AVENUE RESIDENCE
LONG BEACH · CALIFORNIA
A picturesque, clapboard-sided residence with asymmetrically slanted roof planes and a brick-chimney focal point, is refreshed and expanded to accommodate a couple’s modern needs. The original structure’s kitchen and living room is transformed into an open and inviting space for entertaining, illuminated with an enlarged front window and indirect natural light from a linear band of clerestory glazing. The addition’s faceted roof, creates subtly-pitched ceilings that accentuate the daylight from windows arranged in a syncopated rhythm along the house’s elongated side elevations.
