NAME: Stepped Houses
LOCATION: Silverlake, LA

This is a 4-unit multi-family small lot subdivision in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles. The cantilevered upper levels of each house are designed to reduce the foundation size of each unit to its smallest possible dimension - and cost. The design methodology also provides maximum interior area for each unit while simultaneously maximizing the yard space at ground level.

To provide more green space the roof is designed as an elevated garden. This roof garden is (conceptually) created by extruding the natural ground of the lot and filling the in-between space with a building.
