Description: New Small Lot Subdivision in the Cypress Park neighborhood of North East Los Angeles. Transition in scale to mediate between existing family constext and adjacent commercial/residential density zones. Abstracted elements suggesting relationship between early 20th century styles, without using a "patishe" of nostalgic details. Located at a border zone between a low density single family neighborhood and a growing commercial corridor. Provides a prototype transitional model for mitigating the ongoing density growth and ongoing demand for affordable housing. Space is allowed to flow into the site, suggesting an alternative to traditional, monolithic, single mass, apartment/condominium buildings.
