They added a tall-ceilinged living room.

An assembly of roof peaks tops this gabled house and its living room addition.

High windows in the ends of the almost freestanding addition let light fill the tallceilinged room, which joins the main house at the dining room. Los Angeles architect Michael Shotwell decided that a 9-1/2- by 17-foot flat-roofed connector between the house and addition would change the old house's light and traffic patterns only slightly.

At the garden end of the new room, Shotwell added a bay with French doors. It opens to a multilevel deck that wraps around the addition and original house.
