This green architecture building is located in West Hollywood. All of its five apartment units are set in north/south axis. They have 30 ft tall ceilings, and optimized daylight. The materials used are stucco, steel, glass and wood, very simple for apartment building. The floor plan for each apartment is also simple, with  a spacious 1 bedroom, a large open downstairs for living, dining and a kitchen. Open floor plan is applied to allow the owner to customize the plan based on their needs.

This eco construction adopted some sustainable design concepts. The position of the building in the north/south axis will provide good passive design concept. Cross ventilation can be maximized, supported by tall ceilings and operable skylight. Materials were chosen from natural sources and finishings were chosen from non-toxic, no VOC materials. There is also heat recovery ventilation system also which may provide very high SEER. Recycle process was also done to recycle 75% of construction waste.
