How cool is this housing unit?? I looooove the color scheme (surprise, surprise)! It's great to see such thoughtful and creative solutions for multi-family housing complexes.
Habitat 825 is a 53,000 square foot, multi-family housing unit from California architecture firm Lorcan O'Herlihy (LOHA). Located in West Hollywood, this 19-unit complex seeks to develop new forms of contemporary lifestyle through the use of light, materials, colors, and a common open space.
Two interlocking L shapes create this open space, which is accessible by each unit. This common space also functions as a natural form of climate control for the interior corridors, allowing air to pass through and regulate the temperature.
Additionally, private outdoor areas are set within this main space. Separated by landscaping elements rather than "hard" walls or divisions, these spaces enable privacy within an otherwise communal framework.
