2016 Residential Architect Design Awards
Renovation/Adaptive Reuse: Honorable Mention

The Morgan Phoa Library and Residence in Los Feliz, Calif., updates a historically designated property designed by Wallace Neff in the late 1920s. Studio Pali Fekete Architects renovated an ill-conceived 2004 family room addition to the original garage in a manner complementary to Neff’s original interiors. The 3,300-square-foot project also includes the insertion of a new two-story garage and library volume. Its gabled form and tile roof recall the articulation of the original structures, and a perforated bronze anodized-aluminum screen offers both privacy and solar control as well as a boldly modern reinterpretation of the precast concrete window grilles of the original house.
