DECO-STYLE RESIDENCE

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA – 2016

This house is sited in West Hollywood West, a community of small lots with restricted lot area and massing.  Given the almost always perfect weather, we dissolved the mass of the structure, making multiple courtyards visible from the interior rooms.  This stretches the volume of the base while giving most of the land over to gardens.  

The design incorporates massing and form from Deco, a type frequently found in Los Angeles.  Strong horizontal lines, repeating geometries, rectangular forms, stepped massing.  While many Art Deco homes have a solid rectangular mass, we created a lighter and more porous version. 

Construction will be completed in 2020.
