House in Los Angeles III
Los Angeles, California
2017, Entitlements / Construction Documents

House in Los Angeles III is a residence for a family of four. The conceit of the project is that the architectural “box” (typical of long, narrow houses in Venice Beach) is analogous to a folded cardboard box. The tectonic and spatial logic of the house are made on the basis of this analogy: one kind of box (abstract and ideal) is replaced by another (material and real). Two of these partially folded boxes bracket the cylindrical stair core. At the roof, they are expressed as separate volumes that correspond to the master bedroom suite on one side and the children’s bedrooms on the other.
