  • Palm View Apartments was one of the first projects in Los Angeles to offer affordable housing to people with AIDS. The West Hollywood site contained two 80-year-old Craftsman style bungalows which were dismantled and stored during construction, and then reassembled on the parking garage podium to house community rooms for tenants.
  • The two-story renovated bungalows are nearest to the street, and new three and four-story volumes step toward the back of the site. The courtyard opens to the south for beautiful city views from walkways and balconies.
