Wilshire House

This project expanded and completely transformed a small 1940s cottage to create a sustainable courtyard house inspired by traditional Korean Hanok design. The scheme maintained the majority of the existing single-story structure and added a long, narrow, south-facing addition and porch facing a new garden space. Also known as the House of the Seven Skylights, the project included the addition of a series of new vaulted spaces including bedrooms, an artist’s studio, and a secret play room accessed by pull-down ladder.
