TOWARDS NEW MODELS OF SOCIAL CONNECTIVITY

Located in West Hollywood, this new eleven-unit housing project emphasizes the importance of shared open space. The project takes what would be the internalized space of the courtyard and moves it to the exterior of the building, creating a public park occupying approximately one-third (4,600 sf) of the site.  Units are organized linearly, allowing for ‘park frontage’. External circulation is used as a buffer between public and private realms and articulated through layers of perforated metal. Within its own genetic code, Formosa 1140 contains the imprint of a larger urban design that offers some kind of public space back to the city and in so doing, distributes a patchwork of parks across Los Angeles’ formidable grid.
