For this Echo Park remodel, Elissa Scrafano of Scrafano Architects (a member of the Remodelista Architect/Designer Directory) worked with a pair of environmental activists in LA to create a light-filled oasis with an indoor/outdoor feel. Scrafano opened up the interior spaces of the existing midcentury post-and-beam house to bring in more natural light and focused on sustainable materials and energy efficiency, taking the house in the right direction for the long haul. The clients even bought up a couple of adjoining unbuildable lots to create a vegetable, fruit, and herb garden. To see more of the firm’s work, go to Scrafano Architects.
