Judges Statement:
This Attached condo project, with staggered windows that ensure privacy, they include, green courts of pedestrian paseos leading to understated
front entry.
Innovation begins with the tiny footprint of 38’ by 33’ but still 4 bedrooms. Each unit at the rear has a 15’ deep yard. Each unit is assigned guest parking spaces,
with the rear unit having a 2 car driveway. This project exemplifies the modern movement of the 1930’s with floor to ceiling windows throughout where ceilings flow to
the outside, for ceiling to ground continuity. A 3rd floor bonus room has retracting doors, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor relationship to a covered roof deck, all with
distant views of the ocean and the horizon. Tile roof expression at the rear because it abuts an adjacent neighborhood, and should transition appropriately. Train tracks at
the rear require a 15’ setback. This project is a tribute to the long history of the Aerospace industrial influence in Los Angeles and hearkens back to the 1930s modern
character with the architectural influence being Irving Gill, Rudolph Schindler, Gilbert Stanley Underwood, and the Spanish Deco style of Morgan styles Clement.
