Echo Park ADU

Project: 670 sf two story Accessory Dwelling Unit in Echo Park

Year: 2017

Set toward the rear of a 5000 sf property behind an existing house is this 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom ADU with high ceilings and expansive windows that face courtyards made from the sideyard setbacks. A diagram of two simple rectangular plaster boxes shifted the cantilever both shades and also blocks views of adjacent houses viewed over the perimeter wall. The large lap plaster design contextualizes the adjacent craftsman home. Wood ceilings and floors make a warm space. A linear skylight guides you through the house. The combination of views, materials and use of exterior space makes a small house that one will never tire of.
