Lincoln Heights dates to the 1880s and is one of Los Angeles’ first neighborhoods outside downtown. But here, carved into a bluff, sit twin houses that look like 21st century refugees from a modern architecture magazine. Sleek and boxy, with the top floor sheathed in unpainted cedar siding, the contemporary designs were built by Hardy and Kevin Wronske of the Los Angeles-based Heyday Partnership.
Anthony Plamondon, part-time DJ and full-time director of membership at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, owns one of the houses. “I love it. It’s totally modern,” says Plamondon, shown here in one of his three bedrooms, converted into storage for his vinyl collection.
