Set in a dense urban area, this development must capitalize on inspiring views of the Hollywood Hills while giving its tenants a communal green space. By creating a shared garden space in favor of a traditional courtyard, the design team maximizes north-facing views onto the iconic Hollywood Hills.
The garden area is placed above stacked parking, allowing for soil depth significant enough to sustain small trees as well as vegetable planting. An adjoining indoor common area features a chef’s kitchen. This configuration presents many interesting opportunities for socializing and recreation, and may also act as a revenue stream if the landlord chooses to rent the space as an event venue.
