Knowlton School alumnus Martin Fenlon (BSARCH ’97, MARCH ’99) has won a 2018 American Institute of Architects Los Angeles Chapter (AIA|LA) Honor Award for his Fenlon House (2013 – 2015) project. The project brings new life to a dilapidated 1920’s bungalow, located just outside of downtown Los Angeles in the little-known neighborhood of Hermon. The new addition to the front of the house forms a unique alliance with the remodeled existing house. This new frontispiece appears to be intimately nested within the older existing house, while maintaining a stark differentiation.
