Located in the heart of West Hollywood, this new eleven-unit housing project emphasizes the central importance of shared open space for the residents and the community. Formosa takes what would be the internalized open space of the courtyard and moves it to the exterior of the building to create a park which occupies approximately one third (4.600 sf) of the project site. As a result of shifting the common open space to the exterior and pushing the building to one side, units are organized linearly, allowing for 'park frontage' and cross-ventilation for every unit. External circulation is used as a buffer between public and private realms and articulated through layers of perforated metal and small openings (text from architects' website).
