ALL TYPE I CONSTRUCTION WITH 10-LEVELS OVER 2-LEVELS SUBTERRANEAN
Shape-shifting, design-forward 11-story / 14-unit apartment building rising on Rossmore Avenue at the Hollywood border in Hancock Park. The building’s curling design takes its inspiration from the curve in Rossmore Avenue near Melrose. Each floor turns incrementally, so there are no parallel sides on the façade. The result is that the building becomes an optical illusion: from one direction, the top appears thinner than the bottom, but from the opposite direction, the opposite appears true. The effect also causes the shape-shifting building to appear to shrink in height, from eleven stories to six, depending on how passersby are viewing it.
