Imagine, a single building quadplex composed of (4) two-bedroom units broken apart into (6) separate one bedroom units while only using half of the square footage. Due to the smaller square footage and footprint, these units can be arranged in a manner where each unit has their own exterior space directly connected to the interior, creating a seamless indoor-outdoor experience that increases the livable square footage and makes the unit of 450 square feet seem and feel larger. This arrangement is reminiscent of the beloved Bungalow Courts, but with a contemporary design that pays homage to the simple barn structures of Hollywood's antique farmland with bucolic landscapes.
Imagine, a Building that uses Carbon Negative building materials to offset carbon, producing materials that cannot be avoided. A building with Solar Tiles, not panels, that don’t create an eyesore in the neighborhood fabric. A building that collects water for irrigation and that uses passive solar design strategies for cooling. This imagined vision is what we’ve attempted to create in our proposal.
