We aren’t attending Dwell on Design this year, but they were generous enough to photograph the homes on the tour exclusively for Design Milk. This is the first one!

Today’s tour begins on the East side of Los Angeles for a look at the Avon Residence. Located in Pasadena, the original 1,050 square foot structure was built in the 1940s with a new 500-square-foot addition designed by OKB Architecture + Construction. Due to the home being located in a Hillside District, there were restrictions as to added square footage and design.

The new space houses the master bedroom and a multipurpose room, complete with a roof deck to enjoy the view. Part of the addition is covered in a green gradient siding making it blend nicely with the landscape that surrounds it.
