WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA – 2018
The project is 5 Units in the heart of West Hollywood, which is growing from a community of bungalows to one of more densely populated urban living.
The unit types vary from unit to unit, with some master units on the piano nobile and some on the top floor. The front unit has a living space on the 3rd floor to connect to the rooftop deck via glass-enclosed stair.
Solar shading is provided by louvers, and the building is caged by a sheet metal box beam that wraps the volume. Materials include ceramic tile, composite lumber, metal cladding and smooth plaster. The front unit incorporates a car lift and an staircase that connects 3 levels of the structure.
