A Bold, Eclectic Basement Apartment in a Converted Church — House Tour

Name: Lourdes Hernandez and Zach Leigh
Location: Highland Park, Los Angeles
Size: 1900 square feet
Years lived in: 18 months, owned

Creative duo Zach and Lourdes started their relationship as musicians — they met one night at The Largo while playing a show. But recently their creative energies have gone in another direction: Refurbishing an old church in Los Angeles’ Highland Park. The couple first thought they would use this place as a music venue, but after they got married here themselves, the potential for this space as a wedding venue was clear. The Ruby Street is now booked with weddings almost every weekend of the year. The couple live in a home they’ve created in the basement and it’s the perfect collaboration of their tastes and styles.

A “Danish Tropical” Loft in Downtown LA — House Tour

Name: Jennifer Puno and Daniel Chin Yee , and cat’s name is Muad’Dib
Location: Fashion District, Downtown Los Angeles
Size: 1500 square feet
Years lived in: 6 months, renting

Puno and Daniel have only lived in this loft for six months, but they’ve been eyeing for it for years thanks to friends who used to live here. When those friends finally decided to move, Puno and Daniel swooped right in. And knew exactly what they wanted to do with this amazing space. Since they both work from home and work together, this loft was ideal for both entertaining friends as well as getting some serious work done in the office (that has floor-to-ceiling windows). As Puno says, “We love having people over to co-work (our internet is FAST) and the other day we had a BYO cereal brunch.”

Size: 240 square metres
Years lived in: Own

Karen and Jeremy had been living in a beautiful old “timber and tin” Queenslander home with their family prior to this house. They were quite in love with the space, but after taking a hard look at just how much time it was taking to maintain the home — and how much renovating was still needed — they made the tough decision to move to a nearby suburb to minimize their debt. They were able to build a modern, low-maintenance home that fits their family’s lifestyle much better.
