The pool in the courtyard space of this Los Feliz home is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the filtered sunlight that flows through the trees in the evening. This gives poolgoers a break from the afternoon sun, while providing the perfect ambiance for an outdoor picnic.
Across the courtyard from this historic, Los Feliz home is a newly constructed, two-story building that houses the family's garage and library. The building is protected from the sun by a sunshade that lets in just the right amount of light.
Built in 1913 and restored to its former glory by designer/developer Leonard Fenton, Artemesia is an Arts & Crafts masterpiece nestled in the hills of Los Feliz Oaks, minutes from downtown Los Angeles, but a world apart.
In the family room of this Los Feliz home, designers added arches to open up the space and create a view from the dining room to the pool. In the archways, windows were fitted to allow in plenty of natural light and make the room feel bright and open.
The outbuilding of this historic Los Feliz home is multifunctional. The ground floor of the building plays host to the garage, which contains the family's collection of cars, while the second floor is home to the family's library, which is complete with reading nooks, a bathroom, a conference table and storage areas.
