Ashcroft Writer's Studio

A writer’s retreat, secluded from and central to all of Los Angeles, stands in front of the Pacific Design Center in the form of a 2500 square foot live-work space. The massing and form of the new building make reference to the Pelli monoliths. The double height volume and loft taper in plan to create a forced perspective out toward the adjacent gardens. North light filters in through the clerestory window above and washes the cascading planes of the interior ceiling-scape. The folded roof descends toward and opens up at the street. A connection is made between the building and the passerby of West Hollywood.
