ON THE BOARDS: NEW CONSTRUCTION
Our feasibility study for a wonderful project on a corner site across from Warner Brothers Studios included creating renderings to describe the project’s really elegant potential.
Ground floor retail with black precast panels and steel sash windows created a vibrant pedestrian experience. And a fully automated parking system supported 20 luxury housing units on five levels with an amenity deck at the roof level.
IN PLAN CHECK: NEW CONSTRUCTION
We are excited to introduce our 11472 Albers project to the North Hollywood neighborhood. The project consists of two four town home unit buildings that are located opposite a communal driveway.
The units are 3 bedroom 4 bath plus a flex room on the ground floor level. Each unit has an attached 2 car garage and private roof deck.
The design aesthetic gets it’s inspiration from Josef Albers’ simplification of form and interplay of shape and color. Our color palette includes landscaped roofs and walls.
ON THE BOARDS: ADAPTIVE REUSE + NEW CONSTRUCTION
Our South Pasadena mixed use project, Mission Bell, has 36 dwelling units over 7,300 sf of commercial retail and restaurant uses.
The interiors for the units will have a comfortable modern feel offering shaker millwork and cabinets, caesar stone countertops, Bosch appliances (either with enameled white or stainless steel finishes), modern rustic lighting and finishes.
BUILT: NEW CONSTRUCTION
Santa Clarita is a charming growing community north of Los Angeles with a rich history of outlaws, cowboys, gold rushes, and participation in the early glamour days of the film industry. Our project Kansas Street Apartments is located on the southern edge of Santa Clarita near the historic town of Newhall. Two new buildings address the southern edge of our site with five 2-story apartment units with tuck under garages.
The project's design reflects the regions desire to move away from mediterranean influences to a more regionally appropriate Rustic California aesthetic.
BUILT: ADAPTIVE REUSE LIVE/WORK LOFTS
Downtown Los Angeles' (DTLA) Art's District is drawing attention around the country for its portfolio of eclectic warehouse facilities that are finding new life as adaptive reuse creative office and residential communities. One of the earliest contributors to this district's regeneration is Molino Lofts.
Molino is made up of three separate warehouse buildings adjoined over time that were combined, retrofitted and rehabilitated as 95 artist in residence lofts. A roof top pool was added with views to DTLA's skyline.
IN PLAN CHECK: NEW CONSTRUCTION AND REMODEL
We are excited about our new project in Venice. We are transforming this modest one story house with detached garage in to a home for a young family of professionals with kids.
Taking a cue from mid-century modern with a chic industrial vibe, the house will be reimagined as a series of events. The great room, with its soaring vaulted ceiling, will greet family and friends with rich warm materials and textures. Directly attached is the family section, which houses the private spaces, which include 3 beds and 3 baths.
One of the best design features is the non-architectural component or the spaces in between. The outdoor adjoining spaces between the main house and garage-suite are equally as important and compelling as the interior spaces will be. Within the garage suite is a new family room with folding doors, making the indoor space outdoors.
Life as entertainment is a design goal we will strive to maintain as the project makes it’s way through the building department and construction.
More to follow! Stay tuned.
ON THE BOARDS: ADAPTIVE REUSE LIVE/WORK LOFTS
Lincoln Heights is one of the next emerging neighborhoods in Los Angeles’ many urban environments. This adaptive reuse design concept was inspired by the art of construction and the melding of architectural transparent planes with culturally significant meaning.
ON THE BOARDS: MIXED USE MULTIFAMILY
There are times when a project site can be very challenging. The site at National and Overland is relatively flat along National but changes grade fifteen feet along Overland creating a challenge for vehicular and pedestrian access, massing, etc.
Our layered live/work loft solution takes advantage of the sites views to the Santa Monica mountains and completes this old gas station corner with a four story mixed use multifamily building.
IN PLAN CHECK: ADAPTIVE REUSE AND REMODEL
Many areas in Los Angeles can be described as neighborhoods in need of a fresh start. Glassell Park is one of those areas that has a great deal of potential but is currently mired in mediocrity.
We are excited about our 5-unit apartment building remodel that focuses our construction budget where it counts and repositions this property with paint, graphics and outdoor decks and patios.
ON THE BOARDS: BUILDING REPOSITIONING
Located along DTLA's Wilshire Boulevard, 1614 Wilshire is a mixed use repositioning project. The design task was to make minimal changes to the skin of the building while giving it a fresh new look.
ON THE BOARDS: REMODEL AND ADDITION
This charming but run down single family home at the back of our 3245 Drew property is getting a makeover and addition with a fresh look to compliment the apartment building at the front of the property.
