Armstrong Ave Residence
Los Angeles, CA
2017, Complete

The Armstrong Avenue Residence is an 1,800 square foot renovation and addition to an existing house in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. The design is similar to the stepped form of Marcel Breuer’s Whitney Museum in New York - albeit in reverse. Whereas Breuer cantilevers his building toward the street to shelter a courtyard garden, here the house moves in three steps over the rear yard, bringing a sense of enclosure to the rear yard against a steep hillside.
