F-House was commissioned to add a design-driven accessory dwelling unit to a home in LA’s Melrose District. The unit was intended to combine parking with additional family space, while also re-conceiving the home’s outdoor areas. Taking into account the brief as well as some challenging privacy issues, we proposed a very simple building “clad” in hanging vines, which would act as both a sun screen as well as a moveable object, interacting with doors and windows to create a variety of impressions and layered indoor and outdoor spaces.
