12117 Valleyheart Dr. apartments

12117 Valleyheart Dr, Studio City, CA 91604, USA

The building is on Valleyheart Dr., which follows the contours of the Los Angeles River in Studio City, in the San Fernando Valley. The building is just beside the river and is just off Laurel Canyon Blvd. and is visible from, and directly on axis with, the farmer's market held weekly on Ventura Place. The lot has a curved front property line, and the front of the building steps toward and follows that curve. 

The building is 4 wood-framed residential stories on top of 1 on-grade parking level and 1 subterranean concrete parking level. The units are all arranged around, and accessible from, an inner courtyard lined with a thin vertical steel picket guardrail mounted on the edge of the floor. The inner courtyard opens to the street, allowing pedestrian views in. Two main stair cores open to the air and one elevator serve the building; one at and defining the front, and one at the rear of the building. There is 1,900 SF of roof-deck space on the top level and a 600 SF recreation room at the ground parking story. Each studio and 1-bedroom unit has 1 bath, and the 2-bedroom units have 2 baths. 

The exterior of the building is a combination of smooth white cement plaster and grey horizontal shiplap hardie board paneling that frames secondary building volumes, exposed concrete, and, at the front, glossy green-painted smooth stucco.
