More generous entry for a corner lot.

The way in needed a change of direction at this tract house in Inglewood, California. Looking marooned on its corner lot, the house also needed a more inviting entry and screening from the street. The transformation came about with little structural change (the original porch, landing, and concrete stairs remain). The entry deck covers the old concrete landing and extends to support a planter on one side; the planter sits above the top three steps, now hidden by lattice. To protect the house's stucco foundation from the bermed soil, the owner coated it with asphalt emulsion and a layer of plastic-wrapped exterior plywood.
