The brief was to envision a series of ADU designs that could adapt to its context and spatial program. Within the series, units range from a small studio to a generous 2-Bedroom layout. By taking a loosely modular, yet malleable approach to the architecture and interiors, these designs are meant to be customizable- yet streamlined for homeowner clients.

Junior Studio Layout

Junior studio ADUs redefine urban living with compact yet functional spaces adaptable to various needs. Our innovative designs, featuring gabled, sloped, and flat roofs, offer versatility and style while addressing the demand for affordable housing. These units optimize space, foster community, and promote sustainability in urban landscapes.

Large Studio Layout

In this section, we showcase large studio ADUs that redefine urban living with spacious, versatile interiors. Highlighting two distinct exterior styles, our ADUs feature gabled, sloped, and flat roofs, providing flexibility and style to suit diverse architectural preferences. These units optimize space usage while addressing the pressing demand for affordable housing solutions.

To start with one of our personal favorites; the Gable ADU is our ✨Transitional✨ architecture style in the upcoming series; when designing ADUs, we deeply consider the connection between the existing home and new secondary structure.

Though they could be of different eras, the sloped roof, simple forms, and careful selection of vernacular materials in the gable series, unifies the existing with the new, keeping both the exterior and interior experiences in mind.

Below we have three variations of the Large Studio floor plans, adapted to the formal expression of different rooflines. In addition, we have exterior renderings of the Sloped roof variant with a wood finish, as well as the Gabled roof variant with a metal panel finish.
