Designed for the launch of Los Angeles’ Accessory Dwelling Unit Standard Plan program, this all-electric dwelling accommodates multiple orientations and offers different entry approaches and site adaptability to most level lots.
Designed around an L-shaped indoor-outdoor zone where living and kitchen-dining spaces extend into a working courtyard, the plan incorporates the outdoor for everyday living.
A circulation spine accommodates over-head storage and mechanical needs. Doors and windows are strategically placed for privacy, ventilation, natural light, spatial flow and borrowed views.
The courtyard becomes an essential link that forms a reversed L of indoor/outdoor spaces, leaving bed and bath tucked in the most private corner.
A staggered series of fences provides soft-edged screening from the main residence and other parts of the property. Shaded by a PV array, an optional roof terrace extends outdoor living possibilities.
Intended for an individual, a couple or a small family, this dwelling is calibrated to be a self-contained microcosm for living.
