Jay Vanos Architects, 2008

Los Angeles, CA

From its private entry, little prepares one for the two-story volume of the living room and dining area, with the soaring space and 20-ft windows. Located in the heart of Hollywood, this contemporary townhouse exemplifies the idea of modern living with an open floor plan, clean lines and an abundance of natural light.

The unit has 2 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, and an office/den, on three levels. The living spaces are enhanced with quality surfaces and fixtures, including hardwood floors, stone countertops and European appliances. There is also a private two-car garage with direct access to the unit.

There are two large outdoor spaces - a bamboo shaded patio with access to the living room/dining area, and a rooftop terrace with separate dining and conversation spaces with views from the lights of downtown to the Hollywood Hills.
