Farmhouse modern in Studio City

When Vanessa Choy and Andrew Wong closed their architecture practice in Hong Kong and moved to Los Angeles, they bought a Studio City lot and made plans for a farmhouse with a distinctly modern vibe. Here, daughter Jillian, 5, plays with the family dog in the entry hall, where the vertical lines of the house's board-and-batten exterior are repeated in the transition from the outside to the inside. Spotlights and troughs of pebbles line the walls; above lies a fiberglass sunroof.

When Vanessa Choy and Andrew Wong closed their architecture practice in Hong Kong and moved to Los Angeles, they bought a Studio City lot and made plans for a traditional house with a progressive spin. The result is a pleasing mix of country and city, rustic and industrial, casual and refined.
