Midcentury Makeover


Los Angeles

Designed by Eugene Kinn Choy, AIA, in 1952, the Franklin Hills compound epitomizes California outdoor living. Floor to ceiling glass doors provide access to the lush courtyard. Floating steps distinguish the main living level from the swimming pool and lanai. Colorful, cascading drought tolerant shrubs soften the retaining walls.

  • Perimeter plants were carefully selected to provide the family with privacy in the rear garden

  • The new outdoor shower is a favorite family feature
