Body
{"version":"0.3.0","atoms":[],"cards":[],"markups":[],"sections":[[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"This project is located around the block from the historically significant Miracle Mile hub comprising numerous noteworthy cultural destinations, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Adhering to a strategy to maximize land use and capitalize on zoning, the building\u2019s 10,500 square feet push against floor area and density limitations determined by the lot\u2019s size and location. In essence, this project is a volume that cannot expand further."]]],[1,"blockquote",[[0,[],0,"\u0022Nice understated design.\u0022 - Jury comment"]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"The building\u2019s footprint and volume were determined by zoning and development needs, yet within these parameters the architect explored the threshold between the unit and the street, establishing a veil of transformable layers that promotes a hybridized relationship between private and public zones."]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"The project\u2019s fa\u00e7ade is a study in juxtaposing simplicity with complexity, celebrating the structure\u2019s volume with a choreographed display of permeable layers. The building envelope introduces a visual fragmentation that allows for varied experiences of privacy along the edges of each unit."]]],[1,"blockquote",[[0,[],0,"\u0022Rigorously developed and is an upgrade in its context.\u0022 - Jury comment"]]],[1,"p",[[0,[],0,"A blurring of interior and exterior spaces is integral to the design and, dependent on viewing and lighting angles, the building\u2019s sheathing reveals and conceals patios. The project\u2019s integration with its surroundings is upheld by carefully considered deck, window, and walkway placements so that vistas of the Hollywood Sign and Downtown Los Angeles are highlighted from within. While the building is deliberately contextual, the white form also presents a visually striking contrast on a street otherwise occupied by neutral stucco neighbors so typical of Southern California apartment structures, injecting a liveliness and strong contemporary presence into the urban fabric."]]]]}
