This project defines the street front and property lines in order to initiate a new urban condition in the area. Rather than build a house in the middle of a lot of land or build a apartment complex arranged as an object on a site, this project pushes the program to the boundaries of the site to create an urban street front condition with a public space weaved in behind the street front shopping. The units are pulled up above the first floor to create opportunity for the shopping, recreational and park spaces. The units are all town houses that have their own outdoor patio and living space on the bottom floor and then bedrooms on the second floor. Circulating every other floor allows for privacy and less noise pollution next to the bedrooms. Read Less

This project defines the street front and property lines in order to initiate a new urban condition on the intersection of La Brea and Rodeo street in Los Angeles. Rather than build a house as an object in a field or design a static apartment complex, this project pushes the program to the boundaries of the site to create an urban street front condition with a public space weaved in behind the street front shopping.

The units are pulled up above the first floor to create opportunity for shopping, recreational and park spaces. The familes live in town house apartments that all have their own open air outdoor patio space connected to the living space on the first circulation floor while the bedrooms are located above the living space. The circulation occurs by the living spaces to create community while allowing for privacy and silent sleeping conditions.
