In L.A., the house that Google SketchUp built
Janna Levenstein's 1950s home was a maze of small, dark rooms. With the help of a UCLA architecture student and Google's free software, she turned the space into a bright, sleek, indoor-outdoor living space where every room opens onto nature.

The entry to Levensteins main unit opens onto the living and dining area. The dining table is her design. The table and its steel stools were made at a now-defunct metal fabricating shop in El Monte. The tops of the stools were painted to match the kitchen cabinets.
