Simon Story, a native of New Zealand and principal of Anonymous Architecture, specializes in quirky sites and structures in Los Angeles. Open land for conventional building anywhere near Los Angeles is prohibitively expensive and difficult to find. People don’t want to have to drive to the ends of the Earth to find suitable housing and generally can’t afford most of what’s on the market. So creative infill projects like this one on odd scraps of overlooked land in the central city are providing people with what they want at a price they can manage. And Simon makes these home beautiful and a joy to live in.
Once again I’m indebted to my friend Kirsten Dirksen of faircompanies for editing this video.
