Home of the Week: Adding a few twists in Sherman Oaks


Two massive pyramid skylights let in the light at this Sherman Oaks house, which incorporates rough stone siding and a few other twists into its original 1950s design. A renovation by Malibu architect Barry Gittelson transformed an upper deck into a media room while a separate project added a swimming pool in the backyard. A stone patio, a koi pond, olive trees and gardens contribute to the home’s peaceful atmosphere.
