De Longpre ADU

This ADU is a ground-up, detached and elevated apartment behind an existing single family residence in Hollywood.

In need of a guest unit, the owners commissioned RADAR to design a backyard home while retaining as much of the existing garden as possible. RADAR's design for the Gamboge House elevates the living area to free up the ground, creating a second outdoor living room in deep shade, and injects a striking yellow hue, gamboge, into window, column, and stair details.

This ADU was featured in Part of the Solution: YES to ADU published by the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture's Civic Art Program, in partnership with the Homeless Initiative on the Second Dwelling Units Pilot Program.
