Rustic midcentury modern evokes a treehouse in Franklin Hills

A dramatic great room with an asymmetrical wood-and-truss ceiling is at the heart of this remodeled midcentury modern in the Franklin Hills neighborhood of Los Feliz. Angled windows provide treehouse-like views; wooden accents give the rustic interiors the feel of a vintage yacht.

The detached studio resembles a cube made of steel, wood and glass. Views from the hillside lot take in the Griffith Observatory, sunrises and the surrounding greenery.
