Though creating architecture that looks differently than the surrounding neighborhood is usually a bummer, the folks at Brooks + Scarpa in Los Angeles, California did more than an alright job with the Orange Grove project in West Hollywood. Love the industrial hints that carry throughout the home that in of themselves connect back to the neighborhood. Enjoy the warm color palette that mixes with a more modern, neutral palette. Love that garage door that opens up the whole bottom floor.

“Located in a neighborhood characterized by traditional bungalow style single-family residences, Orange Grove is a new landmark for the City of West Hollywood. The building is sensitively designed and compatible with the neighborhood, but differs in material palette and scale from its neighbors. Referencing architectural conventions of modernism rather than the pitched roof forms of traditional domesticity, the project presents a characteristic that is consistent with the eclectic and often unconventional demographic of West Hollywood. Distinct from neighboring structures, the building creates a strong relationship to the street by virtue of its large amount of highly usable balcony area in the front façade.”
