Project Description

2011 RADA
Multifamily / Merit

The movable, perforated metal skin of this 12-unit, mixed-use building in Los Angeles captured the judges’ attention. “It’s very elegant,” said one juror. “A very nice solution.” Architecture firm Brooks + Scarpa devised the owner-controlled, bifold aluminum panels as a way of increasing the project’s engagement with the street, from various points of view. “As you move past it at different speeds—walking and in the car—you get a different perception of the façade,” says principal Lawrence Scarpa, FAIA. The skin also provides shading and privacy while allowing natural light, fresh air, and views.
