Los Angeles Accessory Dwelling Unit [ADU] Architects

Los Angeles ADU Architects

Do you own a Los Angeles Home with an underutilized garage or empty back yard? Do you want to capture your home’s hidden upside potential and maximize your return on investment? Do you want to build an Accessory Dwelling unit and start collecting rent and lower your expenses? If the answer is yes then it’s time to take the next step and contact one of these Local Los Angeles residential Architect firms who have been vetted by me and are well versed with the ins and outs of designing, permitting, and constructing ADUs in Los Angeles.  Consulting Fees will vary from $100/hr to $200/hr. Most of these companies have a standard ADU plan that they can provide for a fixed fee. If you decide you want to customize the plan or make changes then they usually will go by an hourly bases. Expect Architect fees to be in the $5,000 range on average and up to $10,000 for more elaborate designs. 

The Two most common ADU types I see in Los Angeles are Garage Conversion ADUs (Estimated Cost $40,000 to $60,000) and New Construction ADUs (Estimated Cost $120,000 – $150,000). In addition to these main types, there are also Prefab construction ADUs and Attic, Basement, or Room Conversions. From what I have been told by some of the architects on this list who have explored or tried to design Prefab ADU’s they have had a hard time making them work, because unless you have huge scale the Prefab ADUs come out to a similar cost as New Construction. The advantage they would still have is faster completion times, but the ADU process is already pretty quick to begin with last from 3 – 9 months depending on the complexity of the project, so saving a month or two doesn’t really make a big different for most home owners. With that said, there are some pretty cool prefab ADU’s out there, so if you just like one particular unit you might just get that one because you like it.

How much does hiring a Los Angeles Architect Cost?

Architects in Los Angeles can charge based on an hourly rate, a flat fee, or as a percentage of the total construction cost. The cost will vary based on the experience of the Architect and the size of the firm. Larger firms (20 employees +) have higher overhead so they have to take larger projects, usually commercial or very high end residential and charge higher fees to be profitable, whereas smaller firms (5-20 people) can do smaller works like remodeling, additions, ADU construction, Tenant Improvements. For hourly rates expect to pay anywhere from $100-$200 per hour. Flat fees will be available for more standardized projects where the architect can easily estimate the time and resources needed. A percentage of the construction fees is usually for larger custom projects and typically range from 10% to 20% of the total construction budget.

California Bungalow Homes

Buster Keaton’s classic “One Week” from 1920 depicts his comic attempt to assemble a mail order bungalow.

Bungalow

Deciphering what Bungalow means can be very confusing. That’s because the term Bungalow doesn’t relate to any specific architectural style – bungalows were designed in all kinds of different architectural styles- basically whatever sold well and was popular during the early 20th Century (1910’s to 1930’s).

Examples of Different Bungalow Styles Left to Right (Dutch Colonial, Tudor, Craftsman, Craftsman, Spanish, Victorian)

The most popular bungalow styles were: Cottage, Cape Cod, Spanish, Colonial, Dutch Colonial (with its gambrel roof), and Tudor. There were exotic styles too like Spanish Mission Style, Japanesque, Foursquare, and Swiss Chalet, but they were less popular. Sears & Roebeck had over 500 different designs to choose from. The top selling designs were frequently copy catted between competitors so it can be difficult sometimes to pin point the exact model and manufacturer of the most popular bungalow designs.

Bungalows are not distinguished by their architectural style, but instead by how they were built. Bungalows came in pre-cut kits that were easy to assemble and could be purchased from mail order catalogs. Bungalows were the first mass produced housing.

Bungalows were modest in size, typically 5 to 8 rooms, with 2 to 4 bedrooms, and one to two bathrooms (Image living with *gasp* only one bathroom now!).They range in square feet from 800 sqft -1,500 sqft. A house kit could be purchased for $1,000 -$4,000, when the price of a model T was about $400, and the average worker wage was $1,000 per year. These home were really affordable! The tiny garages of the bungalows barely fit a modern size sedan and would never fit a SUV.

Home owners could save the construction cost of $1,000 to $2,000 if they decided to built the house themselves, which many owners chose to do.

California has a lot of bungalows because the 20’s and 30’s were boom years in this states’ history. Spanish and Craftsman bungalows were the most popular styles in California.

Historic Background

The 1900’s saw big improvements to the quality of life for the average American. This was the conception of the “American dream”: to own your own home. At the turn of the century electricity was supplanting oil lamps and candles for light and power, and it was a real luxury to have indoor plumbing. Many houses had a tub in the bathroom, but if you needed to use the toilet you still had to go to the outhouse. There was a new middle class rising, getting married and starting families. They could afford to pay for a modestly priced home and build it themselves provided with a plan and materials. Bungalows became the “it” craze.

sears reobuck factory

Sears & Reobuck’s precut home factory

Companies rushed to meet the demand for new housing by building large home building factories and selling precut and designed homes. In an old Sears Roebuck advertisement they ‘claimed’ all you need to build their house is a wrench, hammer, and screwdriver… In the bungalows heyday it is estimated that more than half million were built.

The largest companies to sell homes by catalog were:

Sears Roebuck, Chicago Illinois
Aladdin Homes, Bay city Michigan
Montgomery Wards, Chicago Illinois
Sterling Homes, Bay City Michigan
Pacific Ready Cut Homes, Chicago Illinois
Wardway Homes, Chicago Illinois
Ready Built Houses Co. Portland Oragan
Gordon Van-Tine, Davenport Iowa
Harris Homes, Chicago Illinois
Home Builders Catalog – Publication

Sears “the world’s greatest store”, was the largest seller of catalog homes. It is estimated that they sold 100,000 homes during the time they were operating between 1915 and 1940. The Great Depression in the 1930’s and the invention of the FHA in 1934 crippled the mail order housing industry. A large portion of mail order housing company profits were made on the loans they underwrote for their houses. When the FHA was created, it offered loans at substantially lower interest rates then the loans homeowners had with the mail order catalog companies. Not surprisingly, most home owners refinanced, and the catalog companies lost their most profitable and important source of income. Couple that with huge unemployment and precipitous drop in home sales during the great depression, and the stage was set for mail order companies folded.

DESIGN FEATURES

partial wall - Copy

Open Living Room and Dining Rooms. This was a big step towards modern open floorplans. The bungalow floorplans opened up the wall between the living room and dining room to save space and make both rooms feel bigger. The areas were commonly separated by a Partial wall . Kitchens were still closed, that didn’t change to 1950s.

Gable Roof1 –Gable roofs. Flat roofs were hardly ever used. The big Gable roofs, provided a huge attic space which could be used as space for an addition later. the gable roofs usually had  overhanging eves.  The Gable could be positioned front or sideways for very different architectural look.

Dormers. The gabled roofs were often enhanced with decorative or functional dormers. If bedrooms were located on a second floor the dormers would give the bedroom a window for light and ventilation as well as increase the ceiling height. Dutch Colonials almost always have dormers.

The closets are extremely small by today’s standards, and certainly no walk-ins. I joke with clients sometimes that people who lived in the turn of the century must have only had 1 or two outfits and probably had to get them washed constantly.

-Lots of built ins, book cases and shelving – linen closets, china cabinets in living rooms, book cases.

– Floor-plans have direct entry into living room, instead of vestibule or foyer. Less formal entry than in the past.

 

Bungalows Today:

The style preferences of America changed in the 1940’s with the introduction of the ranch house, and continued to evolve from the influence of mid century and modern architecture. Popular taste moved away from bungalows for many years. But bungalows are coming back. There is a group of vintage home buyers in Los Angeles buying and restoring these old bungalows. Vintage buyers love them for their intimacy, cheerfulness, and comfy-ness.

Not everybody feels the same way. There is a growing trend in Los Angeles right now to tear down these classic bungalows because the land value is so high and bungalows are underbuilt for the lot. Well-to-do home buyers want 4,000 sqft “Sugar Cube” modern homes. In recent years, HPOZ have been created in several historically significant neighborhoods in Los Angeles to protect these homes from demolition.

Lloyd Wright Studio
858 N Doheny
Los Angeles CA 90069

858 Doheny was built in 1927 by Frank Lloyd Wright’s son Lloyd Wright (who is often confused with his father) as his studio and office. Much like Rudolph Schindler home/studio built on Kings drive five years earlier, Lloyd Wright would live and work in this home until his passing in the 1978.

Located at the corner of Doheny Drive and Vista Grande St in the Norma Triangle neighborhood of West Hollywood- the home is on a compact 3,611 square foot corner lot. The Home is two stories with 2 Bedrooms and 2 Baths measuring 2,413 square feet.

lloyd wright studio textile blocks

The home is built with “Joshua Tree” motif textile blocks, that Lloyd Wright use frequently in the 1920’s and 1930’s. The Upstairs is the living space and Lloyd Wright’s architecture office was downstairs.

Schindler House

West Hollywood 1924 Schindler House

The Schindler House, also known as the Kings Road House or Schindler Chase house, is located at 835 N Kings Road in West Hollywood. It was built by famous modern architect Rudolf Schindler in 1922 for his primary residence.

Schindler house was one of the first modern houses ever built. Schindler was a free thinker and a radical. Many people during his time didn’t understand his designs- they didn’t resemble anything that had been built previously. For this house, Schindler pioneered a new kind of structural engineering technique known as tilt-up construction. 

835 N Kings Road West Hollywood

Unlike other homes of the era that were mainly period revival styles with heavy ornamentation, the floor plan of Schindler house was completely open, reversing the Victorian aesthetic to have a house divided into many small rooms, each with a very specific purpose.

835 N Kings Road Kitchen

In Schindler’s House, it was basically a duplex with a common kitchen designed to be a communal premise. The rooms had no purpose- they were just open space. The floor-plan had no, dining room, living room, or bedrooms. Where did people sleep you ask? Residents slept outside in the open air on the roof in “sleeping baskets”.

Schindler had a fixation on space. To him, the shape of the space within the house was what made it alive- and his definition of good architecture was not what the house looked like but how it was to live in.

Tilt-Up Construction 1922 Image courtesy of MAK Center

The building department refused to issue him a building permit for the house at first because the design was so foreign to them. They later relented, but only granted a temporary permit that could be revoked at any time. Pictured above is the tilt up method of homebuilding. Precast concrete slabs are being hoisted into place with pullies. This method is still used today albeit with much more advanced cranes. The house was completed a year later. Schindler borrowed a large sum of money from his family to build the house, which was done on a tight budget. The investment would pay off because the recognition created from the house in a small influential circle led to more commissions.

Kings Road House Rudolph schindler

What makes the Schindler house unique was the revolutionary design elements of the house that were a foreshadowing of what was to come in the Post World War II boom and beyond when the modern aesthetic really took root. The Schindler house is a very early example of an open floor plan, seamless indoor-outdoor transitions perfect for the Mediterranean Southern California Climate that was accomplished by using sliding panels, and the clean horizontal lines of the buildings elevations (Schindler perhaps assimilated the last on the list from Frank Lloyd Wright who he had worked with prior to building Schindler House).

Inspiration comes from Yosemite

Panorama Trail

The inspiration for the King’s Road House supposedly came from a family camping trip Rudolf and his wife took to Yosemite shortly after completing the Hollyhock House. During their camping trip, Rudolph enjoyed the community living aspect he experienced at the campsites.

When he returned to Los Angeles, he designed the Kings Road House for himself and his wife and their friends Clyde and Marian DaCamara Chace. Clyde Chace served as builder for the 2,500-square foot house.

Roughing it!

Schindler house is designed as live-work space for two couples with a shared kitchen and an apartment for guests.

Sleeping Basket on Roof

Living in the Schindler house was like camping. Sleeping baskets on the roof allowed residents to sleep in the open air. They were made with an overhanging canvas tarp and a flat sheet of wood.

Kings Road House fireplace

 

Even though 1920’s had mechanized heating, Schindler opted to heat the house with wood burning fireplaces only. Some of the rooms in Schindler house were too far away from the fireplace and would be cold at night.

The ceilings are very low, probably only about 7.5-8 feet.

835 Kings Rd Bathroom

Materials used for the house are natural- concrete, redwood, and glass. The building has an economical concrete slab foundation.

Lifelong Home

Rudolph Schindler at Schindler House

Schindler lived and worked in the house for the rest of career, which was about 30 years until his death in 1953.

In the 1920s and 1930s the house was a hotbed for radical social gatherings. Creative thinkers from all walks of life visited and cavorted here. Richard Neutra, Edward Weston, John Cage, Dancer John Bovingdon, poet Sadakichi Hartmann, and Galka Scheyer were among the many notable people to pass through. Later, Schindler’s wife Pauline organized many political events at the house.
With their two very strong personalities, Pauling and Rudolph were just waiting for an explosive collide. In 1927 they separated. Rudolph remained at the house while Pauline traveled from place to place for the next decade. At the end of the 1930s she returned, and moved back into the Schindler House. The two never remarried but continued living together until Schindler’s death. The houses design as a duplex was to prove ideal. Pauline lived in the Chace wing while Rudolph stayed on the other side of the house.

The City Moves in

West Hollywood has developed all around the Schindler House. Mid Rise apartment and condo buildings loom over the house now. There is a thick hedge of bamboo that obscures the house from the street. You may have driven by the Schindler House and not realized it!

John Elgin Woolf

Who Was John Elgin Woolf? John E Woolf Portrait

John Elgin Woolf was a very prominent and influential Architect in Los Angeles. He created the popular ‘Hollywood Regency’ home design style.

John Elgin Woolf was an architect to the stars, with much of his work being done for celebrities. He built houses for Judy Garland, Cary Grant, Mae West and Bob Hope to name a few. His projects were mainly centered around Bel Air and Beverly Hills areas.

I find it surprising that more isn’t published about Woolf when so much has been written about his contemporaries. I think this is partially due to the fact that Woolf was never licensed as an architect, although he graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 1929 with an architectural degree.

Since Hollywood Regency draws inspiration from classical sources of architecture such as Beaux Arts, French and English Regency periods, and then strips it down- perhaps purists feel that Hollywood Regency is watered down and not legitimate. After Woolf’s passing, his partner Robert Koch, made a huge donation to USC’s Museum of Architecture, which now houses over 2,000 of Woolf’s personal and professional items in their collection, including watercolor drawings, photographs, and designs. The collection also has manuscripts containing correspondence between the firm and many of their celebrity clientele.

John Woolf was prolific – his firm was active from 1940-1980 and in that time he completed approximately 300 projects. John Woolf project history.  He specialized in remodels and new construction. Woolf houses sell extremely well and are much beloved by their owners. They are comfortable and possess great livability. Woolf knew how to cater to his audience and created glamour and Drama with big dramatic entrances, large living rooms with floating fireplaces, lavish outdoor pool and lounge areas with pavilion. Many hallmarks of the Hollywood Regency designs are quite theatrical, just like the town they were built in itself.

HOLLYWOOD REGENCY

Growing up in Atlanta Georgia, Woolf was surrounded by many beautiful Beau- Arts houses. After he graduated college, Woolf worked for the National Park Service in Georgia between 1934 and 1936 and carefully studied surviving classical revival antebellum residences. On a visit to New Orleans in 1936, Woolf was particularly impressed by the architecture in the city’s historic Vieux Carre and Garden districts and dedicated himself to master the details behind classical period revival designs. During the time that Woolf was producing his Hollywood Regency houses, post World War II, many of his fellow architects were producing modern houses like the case study houses. Woolf’s houses followed a traditional model. There are a couple design features that define Hollywood Regency:

Pullman Doors

The most instantly recognizable feature of a John Woolf Hollywood Regency design is the out of proportion Pullman style doorway that interrupts the roofline.  The first known example of a Pullman style door was in Woolf’s own Melrose Place offices (8448 Melrose Pl).

John Elgin Woolf Office Melrose Place

John Woolf Opened his office at 8450 Melrose Pl in 1946. This was the first time Woolf used his Pullman Door surround, which rises just above the roof line.

The Second most recognizable feature of Hollywood Regency is the Mansard Roof. Woolf used a simplified version of the mansard roof characterized by a single pitch- that sometimes included dormers. Irving Marx was Woolf’s sheet metal contractor and installed the Mansards on Woolf’s jobs.

Symmetry and Period Revival

Woolf, in following with classical design principals, made his designs symmetrical. He also utilized period revival motifs such as ionic columns, the mansard roof, finials, pediments,

Elliptical Windows and Shuttered Windows

Woolf really loved to use two elliptical windows to flank either side of the pullman door. Sometimes a sculpture or urn would be placed inside of an oval eyelit if they weren’t windows (which you can see on the Pendelton House). If Windows weren’t used, then Lanterns were put in their place instead.

POOL PAVILIONS

John Woolf loved pool pavilions. The pool was the center of his outdoor entertaining area plan and it was usually buttressed by a pool house or pavilion.

FLOATING FIREPLACE

John Elgin Woolf created the illusion of a floating fireplace by putting a glass window directly above the mantel and firebox- where a brick chimney flue would usually be.

BIG BREAK  

John Elgin Woolf (called Jack by his friends) moved to Los Angeles in 1936, like many young Hollywood Hopefuls, to become a movie star. He figured that being born in the South, he was a shoe in for the new film Gone With the Wind. Unfortunately Jack didn’t get the part, but in the process he met the movie’s director, prominent Hollywood mogul George Cukor, who threw lavish parties every week with a star-studded guest list with the likes of Somerset Maugham, Katharine Hepburn, Greta Garbo, and Mae West.   Woolf’s charming southern manner made him well-liked and gained him many friends. Woolf became a regular at Cuckor’s weekly Hollywood parties. He frequently accompanied comedian Fanny Brice as her beau (even though Woolf was gay). Fanny gave Woolf his first big break when she hired him to design for her a small English Georgian-style guest house for her massive mansion at 312 Faring. The Guesthouse came out great (still there today but overshadowed by a newly constructed Pool/pool house by Ferguson & Shamanian) and the project led to a number of other entertainment industry commissions including a Georgian remodel for Ira Gershwin and another for Manhattan socialite Hugh Chisholm. Before long Woolf’s client list looked like a Who’s Who in entertainment. The Motion Picture industry was drawn to his whimsical designs.

OFFICES AND ROBERT KOCH

Woolf Opened up his Melrose Pl office in 1947. This would turn out to be a great boon for him because it is there that he met his future partner. John is celebrated for his talents with Architecture, but as a business man- he struggled to manage his financial affairs. Robert Koch was an interior designer working for a shop across the street on Melrose. Robert was a native of Temple, Texas, and so maybe that southern connection between Jack and Robert was part of the reason they hit it off. Soon, Robert Koch and John Woolf were attending George Cuckor’s parties every week together, and then they became an item.

Woolf would dazzle perspective clients at meetings with his beautiful water color paintings and sketches of his design ideas for their dream home, while Robert would make sure and secure the deposit check. The two were a great team- John concentrating on designing elegant houses and Robert handling the interiors. It was Robert’s shrewd business acumen that enabled Woolf’s practice to take off.

 CASE STUDY HOUSE

Perhaps, the most famous Woolf house was a house that he remodeled for himself- Case Study House No. 17, built in 1955 by Craig Ellwood.

It was one of the largest case study houses. John Elgin Woolf disliked the the look of it and completely re-did the steel and glass modern as a roman pavilion!

AFTER

He enlarged the living room, completely rebuilt the kitchen and rearranged the bedrooms. To ornament the outdoor swimming pool, Woolf created a Doric Collonade to enclose the space and give it the romantic quality of a roman atrium. Many people who adore mid century modern were upset and considered John Elgin Woolf’s remodel a defamation.

Porte-Cochere

Porte-Cochere is a French term that translates into English roughly to “coach gate” or “carriage porch”. Porte-Cochere’s were common in Europe during the 18th and 19th centuries when travelling by horse was common. The Porte-Cochere provided overhead shelter to guests as they stepped in and out of their carriages at mansions, cathedrals, and other formal public buildings. Classical Porte-Cocheres contain Large stones at their base, known as “guard stones” which prevent horses from colliding with the columns.

Today in Los Angeles, we can find many adaptations of French Normandy inspired Porte-Cochere in residential housing. Porte-Cochere are very common in period revival architecture that is found in South Carthay, Carthay Circle, Miracle Mile, Hancock Park, Layfette Square, Beverly Hills flats, Beverly Park, and other areas throughout the city.

Clinker Brick

Clinker bricks or ‘clinkers’ are bricks that were left too long in the oven and burned. Brickyards considered these Clinker bricks to be defective because they were charred and misshapen and threw them out. The clinkers were discarded into large clinker piles. The name “clinker” comes from the unusual sound these bricks make when they are banged together. It is a high pitch sound *clink* or a *clang*.

These burned bricks have twisted and contorted shapes and volcanic textures. In the 1920s, the Arts and Crafts movement discovered a use for clinker bricks by incorporating them as decoration into normal brick patterns. Famous Los Angeles architects like Greene & Greene incorporated clinker bricks in their designs. The brick’s eccentric, irregular shapes and colors appealed to the Arts and Crafts aesthetic of things having imperfections, a hand made quality, and something that made each brick unique.

Today clinker brick buildings dot the los Angeles urban landscape. Miracle Mile, Hancock Park (especially on Rossmore), and Pasadena are great areas of the city to visit to see examples. Clinker bricks houses are treasured for their quirky and unique charm.

STORY

army

 

At 17, Gesner was recruited into the US Army 10th Mountain Ski Division because he was an avid skier. Gesner was taught Skiing by his Norwegian uncle growing up. Gesner survived the invasion of Normandy during WWII. Gesner was blasted by a german tank and his legs were badly damaged from frost bite. The doctors recommended surgery and amputation but he fiercely refused, instead choosing to massage his legs and rub olive oil on them, the doctors gave Gesner a new drug- penicillin, and he eventually recovered completely.

After the war, Gesner spent six months in South America as an archeologist/treasure hunter. He sold the loot from the Inca expedition to museums and collectors and used the proceeds to pursue architecture.

Gesner audited an architecture class at Yale. Frank Lloyd Wright was impressed by Gesner’s drawings and invited him to Taliesin West. Gesner, ever the rebel, refused- he had no intention of becoming a Frank Lloyd Wright Jr. and dedicated himself to self-educate.

EARLY CAREER

Gesner began by working as a laborer on construction sites alongside skilled Journeymen. He quickly learned all the various trades, although he self rated himself average at each. Within 10 years he was very busy designing/buildings homes. In 1954, he built his parent’s house in Tarzana, with his signature slanted stone adobe.

Gesner’s parents house that he built for them

He quickly received a reputation for challenging projects and taking on all comers. He built spectacular dream homes on what were considered unbuildable lots. One example of such a project is the Gesner design Hollywood Hills Boathouses on Woodrow Wilson and Pacific View Drive.

Gesner designed a home for playboy swimwear tycoon Fred Cole that had bamboo bead curtains that clattered when one of Cole’s countless model girlfriends passed in and out.

He built a home in 1966 for the inventor J.R. Scantlin with a lap pool that had an underwater entrance to the master bathroom—a feature architect Richard Meier, a later tenant, sealed up when a transient plunged through the opening, attired himself in Meier’s clothing, and was found smoking a cigar in the living room.

Gesner designed a little over one hundred homes- a number that is relatively low (compare with Frank Lloyd Wright who designed over 400). This is because Gesner was very hands on during construction.

Sandcastle

Sandcastle, Gesner’s primary residence, situated next store to wave house, was made with reclaimed wood. Gesner built Sandcastle for his wife. “I wanted to design something that [she] and my son would be happy in, that we would all be happy in, and a circular house has a great feeling of peace and livability.”
