Janna Levenstein's 1950s house was a maze of small, dark rooms. With the help of a draftsman, UCLA architecture student, Google's free SketchUp software and her contractor, Levenstein turned the space into a bright, sleek, indoor-outdoor living space where every room opens onto nature. The home's new modern look comes partly from the immense amount of glass she installed.
