The Little-Big House / Annie Ritz + Daniel Rabin

The Little-Big House

Annie Ritz together with Daniel Rabin (husband and wife) have recently completed The Little-Big House, a bright and comfortable family-home located in Los Angeles, California.

From the architect: Named, “ The Little-Big House ” by our clients, we took on the task of transforming a cramped, poorly sub-divided 60s house, into an open, hip, hillside home. Our first step was to correct the spatial layout; we gutted the entire first floor and master bathroom upstairs, relocated the kitchen and relocated a guest bedroom, in order to create a series of unique but connected living spaces; built-ins, a textural fireplace and custom seating helped to distinguish each living zone and give the open space definition.

To overcome the narrow footprint of the master bathroom, we opened up the ceiling, added a skylight, and combined a continuos graphic tile with a light material palette. Finally, new doors and windows are placed strategically to capture hillside views, bring in natural light and connect to the petite backyard patio – touched up with a fresh, two tone color scheme. All photos by: James Elliot Bailey
