Silver Lake Architectural Allyn Morris Design Studio and Residence Hits the Market
New to the Silver Lake market is the Allyn Morris Design Studio and residence at 2390 Silver Ridge Avenue in Silver Lake, California
Silver Lake Architectural of brick, steel and glass at 2390 Silver Ridge Avenue as his own personal residence and studio. The black and white photo from the 50's shows the home as it still looks today (without the collector car under the carport!)
The cantilevered space is compact at just 1026sf but feels larger due to its height and the walls of glass that open to expansive views.The Allyn Morris Studio has a two story living room, dining and kitchen area with the master bedroom on a mezzanine. There are bright red accents throughout the house not only in the steel framing and and railings but in the kitchen and furnishings as well.
Red Spiral Staircase Creates Visual Impact
The master bedroom loft space is reached by a spiral staircase of steel. The staircase itself as visible from inside as well as outside the house is a design statement of its own. The lower level had been used at the architect’s studio but could certainly serve as a second bedroom for its next owner. It’s unassuming street view of brick and single carport has changed little since the house was built in 1958.The interior of this Silver Lake Architectural retains many original details from bathroom fixtures to mosaic and brick work. Stepping into the home is like stepping back in time.
Though the original kitchen of the Allyn Morris Design Studio was demolished, the updated kitchen remains true to the original design and Morris provided advice and supervision during the remodeling. The cabinetry was painted a bright red to match the spiral staircase and other design elements of the house.
