From the architect. Located on a vibrant commercial street in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles, this building is a renovation of an existing 1930’s residential duplex. The project involves an ongoing series of interventions and transformations, beginning with the renovation of the building and growing to include a fence, with several (constantly evolving) additions in the works. The building includes the design office of Oyler Wu Collaborative, with a private residence located upstairs. The exterior of the building is an austere two-story volume clad in fiber-reinforced cement board with deep, recessed aluminum windows. The interior of the building combines exposed 1930’s wood frame construction with simple modern detailing.

The primary design feature of the project is an aluminum and 100% recycled composite board fence along Hyperion Avenue. This fence serves as a visual barrier between the busy traffic along Hyperion Avenue and the live/work building. Conceived of as a privacy fence, the structure explores the spatial and geometrical implications of a constant fluctuation between horizontal louver and vertical slat.

Nice clean, sharp building and the space inside looks like it was really opened up, would love to work in a volume like that.
It seems went out on a limb with the fence, but I love how its form appears to be in motion, and not fixed in any fixed position. It might be cool if the fence was dodging around trees and plants.

I'm probably the only one here dragging my foot out of the Twentieth Century, but I adore those old plastered Mexican Deco buildings of the 1930s. I may be biased about this (my grandparents built one back then in Ephrata, Washington). I think OWC erased the style but they did a nice job on the building...and the fencing makes a more complicated counterpoint to the sleek building facade. Now I miss my grandparents.

The fence would've been better without the twisting business - its a case of over-design imposed on an otherwise nice little restrained project.

Hyperion?

Weren't those one of the distributors of cracked Adobe products back in the days?

This is a bloody cracker's hideout!

Call the FBI, CIA, DEA, whoever, just call someone, quick!
