Home of the Day: Contemporary chameleon in Hancock Park

A tiled spa adds a splash of color to this concrete and glass contemporary home in Hancock Park.
(Richard Horn)

This sleek, modern residence in Hancock Park is obscured from the street by the facade of a 1924 Spanish-style bungalow. Bridging old and new, interiors offer a mixture of contemporary styles while maintaining select period details of the original home. Outdoors, a spa lined in yellow and red tiles adds a splash of color and a visual contrast to the concrete and glass exterior.
