Selby Residence, Los Angeles, CA
Project Manager/Designer @ SEA/DavidHertzFAIA
The Selby project was a ground-up design and construction plans for clients who also wanted to have a studio over the garage/carport. The challenge gave us the opportunity to maximize the lot and stretch out a little bit by connecting what traditionally would be separate structures based on the zoning codes of the neighborhood. However, adding a breezeway and bridge to connect the two allowed us to create a compound, thereby forming a partially enclosed space for gatherings and outdoor entertainment, maximizing use of the narrow city lot.
