Stunning Home Libraries



Architect Margaret Griffin, in collaboration with architect Elyse Grinstein, renovated a home on Los Angeles’s West Side, an area that has natural creeks and groves of indigenous trees. The star tree here is a 300-year-old sycamore that shades a small spring and lush slope in back. The snug library “started out with a full brick wall facing the tree,” explains the owner, but the brick was replaced by sheets of glass to bridge the room’s connection to the outdoors.(April 2004)
