1443 Hi Point Avenue
The clean, straightforward modern architecture of this project featured an expansive, 3-foot separation between each unit, resulting in five free-standing buildings that capture light and air on three of four sides rather than the more traditional two. The design included 2-bedroom, 2-bath residences with private 2-car garages and a large roof deck/patio. A convertible guest room with folding and sliding door panels create a flexible living space. Among many special features were large rolling islands for movable food prep and serving.
1213 Dunsmuir Avenue
Built on a deeper lot than many Los Angeles residential sites, 1213 Dunsmuir accommodated six units with zoning that allowed for a height of 45 feet. The result was a design featuring 17’ high residences with double height windows that flood the 2-bedroom, 2¾ bath units with light and enable exceptional views. Ground floor parking and entry; 2nd floor living, kitchen, dining; 3rd level mezzanine office/ guest room; 4th level bedrooms, and a 5th level roof deck are all part of the vertical living approach that optimized the site. The project exterior featured bold, angular lines and earthier finishes that created a contemporary and warm exterior.
906 N. Hudson Avenue
At the developer’s request for larger homes in this small lot subdivision project, architect Jay Vanos designed homes from 1900 to 2200 square feet. These four luxurious residences featuring A Level finishes are replete with custom cabinets and millwork, imported Italian doors and frames, Fleetwood sliding doors and windows. No expense was spared on top-of-the- line imported quartz countertops and backsplashes, Hans Grohe plumbing fixtures and Miele appliances. These homes sold for record prices - exceeding the client’s projections with 30% higher sales prices per square foot than all other Becker General SLS Projects.
