Back on the market is this architectural residence in the Franklin Hills neighborhood of Los Feliz. This home has been on and off the market since mid 2011, but I have a feeling that given its new price point and the current shortage of inventory on the market, it will move this time around.

 Using the same wood, the ceilings of the living room, dining room and kitchen are covered in faceted, origami-like panels that undulate overhead and provide a warm contrast to the terrazzo floors.

 The home’s floor plan, which provides for substantial separation of the main living quarters, includes expansive views with plenty of all-day sun and they are configured around a generously sized patio/deck at their center.

If just having an awesome house isn’t enough, this one comes with the added bonus of a super cool concrete and glass studio whose entire front and back walls open up and lead to an adjacent private pool. Anyone who has the option of working from home would fall in love with the idea of this being their “office”.

 As a LEED accredited architect it makes sense that the home includes “Green" design elements, including a leased "Solar City" electric generation system on the roof.
