Buy Architect David Hyun's Own Korean Modern in Silver Lake

New, 16 comments

Well, here's something you don't see every day: a Korean-inspired mid-century-modern-style house built in the mid-nineties. Though it looks the part, the five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom house was actually built in 1993 by self-taught Korean-American architect David Hyun for himself and his wife. Though there are some incredible views from inside the 4,909-square-foot Silver Lake Reservoir-adjacent house, it also has lots of interior details to catch the eye, like the oak floors and vaulted ceilings laced with exposed beams. The kitchen appears to have been designed for people who actually cook and eat at home, with "Viking stainless steel appliances, custom bamboo cabinets and a breakfast room with a view of the lake." It's also got what appears to be a dedicated PowerPoint presentation room, set up with four chairs, a projection screen and basically nothing else. Hyun worked for prominent modernists Richard Neutra and Robert Alexander, and you walk through his work every time you take a stroll through Little Tokyo's Japanese Village Plaza. His house is asking $1.89 million.
