The Avenue Hollywood is a 180-unit development of ‘architectural apartments and penthouses’ located in the heart of Hollywood. It was envisioned as a sophisticated and upscale residential option. In collaboration with Cunningham Group Architects the project was developed to include a dramatic open space with a wide range of program opportunities. Our design intent was to capitalize on this large podium courtyard by creating intimate spaces, using rich textures and materials, and an exotic plant palette. The design incorporates hardwood decks, pin striped inspired ground plane patterns, sculptural aloe trees, glass framed viewed, and bizzaza tile accents. A series of ‘succulent arches’ provides a rhythm to circulation through the space, and a unique detail when viewed from above. The transformation of this on-structure space into an inviting garden-like environment has created an identifying element for the whole project, which brings the residents together and has greatly enhanced the entire development.
