A new duplex development addresses appropriate densification in suburban Los Angeles by virtue of a small lot subdivision. Each unit comprises 1750 square feet of sustainably-focused design, including radiant floor heating, cross ventilation, natural day lighting, and graywater collection. A rooftop deck and garden maximize use of the building envelope by increasing access to outdoor space. The design provides a value-oriented solution for long term property ownership. Total area: 3,500 square feet.
