When an electrical fire destroyed her L.A. home, Bobby Blatt, 76, didn't downsize to a condo. She chose to rebuild. She asked her son, Michael, and his wife, Alice Fung, partners in Fung & Blatt Architects, to design a spacious modern house that meets her current needs but also is flexible enough to change as she grows older. Pictured here: The more traditional front door opens to an airy living room, where Bobby passes through a modern glass door to a patio area.
