This weekend, the AIA/LA opened up four houses--two in the Hollywood Hills, two in Los Feliz--for its annual fall home tours. Join us as we tour them all.
The Green Oak Drive Residence, the last house on this year's tour was, like all the others, a full overhaul of an existing house (it, along with the Beth Holden, Steven Kent, and Taalman Koch houses, were all built in the fifties). Loren Judaken of Hoffman.Vest.Judaken "totally gutted and reimagined [the house] to create an open floor plan" and give it a calming, jungley feeling. The landscaping is lush and the water features are plentiful here. The house is full of custom furniture designed by HVJ, as well as pieces from Bali, china, India, Morocco, and Tibet.
