Designed by FreelandBuck behind an existing house on a tight lot, the appropriately named Second House spans 1,500-square-feet through a series of volumes topped off with steep rooflines. While the Culver City residence mimics the rooflines of the existing home, it’s designed around a central courtyard that offers privacy on a spatially challenged site.

The residence gives off a geometric monolithic feel with its exterior covered in cement board panels laid in a custom, two-toned pattern.

Every room was designed to connect with one of three outdoor spaces, including the main living area that leads out to a light-filled space to dine or hang out. A floor-to-ceiling door folds away to extend the kitchen and dining room to the patio.
