"Historic Wonder" on 2nd Street

Leslie Brand's 800 square foot Santa Monica cottage has been resurrected as the centerpiece of a four-unit condominium development at 1012 2nd Street, now on the market. Famous for developments in Glendale and San Fernando, Brand's grand estate El Miradero in the foothills of the Verdugo Mountains has served as a library for some time and was also recently updated. The designated Landmark cottage was expanded and a glass bridge connects to bedrooms in the new building. The addition is four stories in height with views of the Pacific Ocean. It was a pleasure working on this great project with Howard Laks Architects, "rehabilitating it to its former glory." Read more about the project featured in the May 13, 2016 issue of Digs magazine here.

 View of the bridge connection between the Landmark cottage and new building; note how the roof of the bridge connects just under the eave, nice (in so many respects)!
