The Evening Hour: Houses from New Members of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory

December 2, 2012

Houses, like many things, look best during the blue hour. Here, five modern twilit homes from the newest members of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory.

Above: Ireland-born, LA-based Oonagh Ryan Architect reconfigured the kitchen, living, and dining rooms of her 850-square foot midcentury home to maximize limited space. Read about the kitchen she designed for her husband, a professional chef, in Rehab Diaries: A Chef and an Architect Remodel an LA Kitchen. Photo by Stuart Gow.

Above: San Francisco architects Charlie Barnett Associates flipped the traditional hierarchy of spaces by placing shared living quarters on the top of this three-story addition and bedrooms on the bottom, in order to maximize access to sweeping city views. Photo by Mark Darley.
