ModOp Design Transforms Echo Park Home

ModOp Design Transforms Echo Park Home

The Echo Park urban landscape, courtesy of Greg Steinberg and Alexandra Becket of ModOp Design, welcomes a new addition tomorrow: 2220 Reservoir Street.  After several home restorations in Silver Lake and Highland Park, the married duo took on a project in Echo Park, a neglected, stuccoed 1922 duplex north of Sunset Blvd. and west of Alvarado.

I was among the lucky few who, since January, visited the home and witnessed its reconfiguration and beautification.  Both buildings were heavily de-stuccoed to reveal wood siding underneath.  The Echo Park Historical Society (a member myself), avid promoter of “Say NO to Stucco,” would be proud.  Parquet and laminate flooring have been replaced with dark oak hardwood planks, while a large butcher block island completes an entertainer’s kitchen.

The duplex is within walking distance to City Sip, the much-anticipated Mohawk Bend (Echo Park’s first gastropub), American Apparel, and the neighborhood VONS.  As a longtime resident of Echo Park, the home renovation supports a burgeoning interest in character homes and an increased desire to live in the Eastside.
