When it comes to home renovation, architects and designers are a great resource for ideas on improving our living spaces.
Learn from several noted architecture firms — and one designer — at the self-guided "Renovation Innovation: 2017 de LaB Home Tour" on April 2.
The homes range from a 1965 midcentury home that was badly in need of an update in Los Feliz Estates to a Silver Lake duplex that, once transformed, is filled with angles.
But not all of the best ideas come from licensed architects. When a fire destroyed Casey Caplowe's Echo Park home, the co-founder and chief creative officer of GOOD decided to design his dream home himself.
See the results for yourself on April 2.
