(Los Angeles, CA)
The four historic bungalow courtyards were constructed between 1921-1925 in the Bungalows, Mission Revival and Spanish Colonial Revival styles, and are composed of attached or detached bungalows flanking
central courtyards with one-story or two-story rear buildings.
Each of the unique interior features was preserved, repaired, and restored, but not overly so: the goal was to update and restore with minimal impact. Outside, historic plantings were retained, trimmed, and infilled with new drought-tolerant and period landscaping. Historic walks and concrete porches were restored, repaired, or replaced as needed, with custom color schemes for each property.
The project saved and revived a significant amount of historic housing stock, giving it new life as valuable affordable housing in the heart of Hollywood.
