A Midcentury Medical Office Given All the Comforts of Home

The squat, single-story medical building in Los Angeles’ historic Filipinotown wasn’t the type of structure most people dream about converting into a residence. There weren’t the soaring vaulted ceilings that you might find in a church or the thousands of square feet of open space that a warehouse would offer. Instead, there was a room-size X-ray machine, walls lined with lead and enough tiny sinks to outfit an airport restroom. But to Daniel Nadeau and D. J. Peterson, it looked like home. “We had both lived in traditional shingle-style houses,” says Peterson, an international strategy consultant with roots in LA. “At the end of the day, we really wanted to opt out of the regional bungalow aesthetic.”
