By Dwell @dwell
We visit five more modern homes on day two of the Dwell L.A. Home Tours, Saturday, June 22, this time exploring the east side and downtown, from the boroughs of Silver Lake and Glendale to downtown L.A.’s historic core, around the corner from the hustle and bustle of Dwell on Design 2013.

We begin east of downtown, in La Cañada Flintridge, where Form Environment Research (fer) Studio built a home “barely perceptible from the street above, designed to blend into the shadows of the La Cañada foothills,” according to architect Christopher Mercier, who designed the home with coprincipal Douglas Pierson. On the east side of Silver Lake, we’ll head to Tittuped, an all-steel custom pre-fab built by architect Tom Marble for nurse and Zen Buddhist monk Tim Tattoo. In Glendale, resident Brent Nichols opens the doors to H House, his modest 1962 house by Richard Banta, an alumnus of several prominent architecture firms, including the offices of Carl Maston, Welton Becket, and Armet & Davis. ("I wanted to give the home a ‘1960s futurism mixed with modern’ feel,” Nichols says.) Designer David Mast will welcome ticketholders into his towering concrete, steel, and glass live/work space, with 360-degree views from the roof terrace, in the AIA Award–winning Atwater Village Homes by architect Charles Kluger. Finally, Stuart Patterson reveals his own live/work space in Claud(e) Beelman’s 1929 Los Angeles Board of Trade Building, which has a level for his design company, Colorola Studios, and soaring rooftop views of L.A.’s downtown skyline and beyond.
