Precariously situated on a steeply sloping site, the Lexton/MacCarthy site offers wonderful west facing views of Los Angeles. Given the limited square footage of the program, the primary floor was conceived as a free plan, to allow for programmatic flexibility.

The resulting abstract mass emphasizes the uneven distribution of program. (text from architects website)
