silverlake, ca, 2005, unbuilt, [place] - The existing house and entry courtyard abut a narrow hillside street. Glare and heat gain from southwestern exposure make the space unusable. A new steel and mesh canopy, a high bluestone wall, and a large flowering ornamental tree shade the courtyard. A shallow gravel pond with a bubbler works to evaporatively cool the outdoor space. The oversized entry door is wrapped in a wood band that extends around the front of the house, creating informal seating and planters.
