A low garden wall separates this Spanish bungalow from the street, making the home feel secluded, even in Los Angeles. Poured-in-place concrete steps and a custom laser-cut metal gate mark the entrance to the courtyard.

Red barrel-tiled awnings and white stucco exterior give this space a Spanish flair. Standard brick steps give way to concrete pavers that evoke the Moorish influence of southern Spain for this guesthouse. Three sets of double doors that open from floor to ceiling keep the guesthouse open to cooling breezes.
