2409 Griffith Park Blvd. apartments

2409 Griffith Park Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Two main challenges of this project included: one, the fact that this site is divided in two different zones with different requirements (including different density, FAR and height requirements) and two, the fact that this site is in a special flood hazard zone. 


The project consists of two separate building-code defined buildings with one shared semisubterranean parking that has a main entrance from Griffith Park Blvd. The building on the Griffith Park side (RD2 zone) includes 3 townhouse-style units with individual stairs from the parking, 3 level residential living space (3 and 4 bedrooms) and private roof open space. The building on the Hyperion side is 2 stories and has 10 apartment units--all 1- and 2-bedrooms-- and each unit on its own story. 


The two buildings are connected with a common sitting area at the concrete podium deck level and they are also connected with a walkway bridge at the upper floor. The exterior of the complex is white stucco, stained wood panels under balconies with black metal railings, and weathering steel at the street-facing sides.
