SANTA MONICA, CA
A 10 unit townhome project. Each unit is three stories with an attached garage tucked under the main level. The master suite is on the ground floor, kitchen living room, and bedroom on the main level, and loft on the upper level.
The site is very constrained. The upper levels were required to overhang dramatically above the garages into the driveway, to accommodate the living space. In order to deal with the narrow "slot canyon" there, we articulated the walls with undulating curves, and indentations for private balconies. A palate of avocado green and grey with accents of yellow, terracotta, and metal siding was chosen to give vibrancy to the architecture.
