LOS ANGELES RESIDENCE: 1900 BOCA

 

This project sought to address a fundamental problem in Los Angeles Housing through a new typological approach: The Prefinished/Fabricated Master Suite. As with most older homes in Los Angeles, this 1920s Craftsman had 2 small bedrooms, with no Master. Rather than try to incorporate the Master Suite in the existing Craftsman, a new, modern, standalone structure was created at the top of the lot, capturing the expansive views of Dowtown LA. The all Steel Structure features an unique braced frame structural system (allowing for maximum windows with no shear walls) , Butterfly Roof, and prefinished systems materials exterior and out. Los Angeles Building and Safety Award for outstanding Design.
