From the architect. A 54-unit building, The Hollywood is something of a pioneering project in a part of Los Angeles that, while emerging from years of civic indifference, remains a bit rough around the fringes. The multifamily courtyard condominium development announces the arrival of modern urban living to complement the entertainment, hospitality and retail revival under way in Hollywood.

The $15 million project is the first for-sale condominium building in a part of town populated mostly by rental properties. A Modernist façade features high-end contemporary forms tempered by the warm hues of a wood-composite exterior. The top level features double-height penthouses with mezzanines. The first four levels are comprised of flats. Inside, 17-foot ceilings create spacious living environments punctuated by high-end minimalist design. Two levels of subterranean parking accommodate 135 vehicles.

Each unit in the u-shaped building is distinguished by unique balconies and windows that give residents a sense of place and the pleasure of outdoor living in an urban neighborhood. Interior units and the central corridor open to a courtyard and its lap pool. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide generous views from every unit. Views focus on the Hollywood Hills to the north and the bustling Hollywood street scene to the east, south and west.

i like the overall conception and plan of this building but the main facade is a disaster...it feels/looks awkward-trying to be cool and nonchalant but not succeeding...

Nice. It may be a bit stuffy and even crowded like the comments above suggest, but the finishes and materials are kind of cool. It looks a bit different without being so, as taken from the floor plan. I don't know about living there, it would depend on the neighbors, but if only to have it as an urbanite crash pad, it sure sounds intriguing.

im curious about the pattern of the windows....

cad · September 24, 2009

In the daytime there's barely any sun in the pool area.
It's not even on Hollywood Blvd.

W/ a name like "The Hollywood," I would not expect too much, normally. But this project seems to live up to the unrealistic aspirations suggested by the term "Hollywood" - particularly due to the external "framing" achieved by the crisp, white outer dimensions, which heighten the warmth and texture of the wood-cladding inserts. It also possesses enough "randomly" organized windows that, although not quixotic, at least avoids the banal regularity that afflicts other rectangular structures of this type and function.

the plans have some good things and some not so good things.
but the overall result is rather good.

richie · September 24, 2009

I don't really like the plan.
The facade nor.

gc · September 24, 2009

I'm curious as to how the main elevation was designed... I wonder how/why they came up with that pattern

ygogolak · September 24, 2009 07:31 PM

It looks cool.
