Mar Vista Remix

Triplex in Los Angeles

After studying the Mar Vista tract and the Mar Vista original housing type, two ADUs were added on to the house to create a triplex. This triplex is designed for three individuals that need a live and work space. Geometry is angled to allow each ADU to have its own private outdoor space. Awnings and clerestory windows are continued to establish a continuous language. 

In further exploration, I would like to expand upon the capability this project has to enhance the clarity of circulation and use of angles. 

Checkerboard

High Density Housing in LA

This project's goal is to downsize high quality dense housing by allowing green spaces, amenities, and housing units to be properly divided and blend with the neighborhood. A double-loaded corridor allows for relation to a large social area that connects the individual communities.

In further exploration, I would like to push the checkerboard pattern. By separating the units even further, creating small townhomes, this would create unique circulation with enhanced lighting systems and further downsize the project.

Included process work for the present analysis of object space and steel. I am anxious to see what this semester brings and respectful of the sobering honor of designing an Atomic Bomb Memorial.
