The practice of Aleks Istanbullu Architects designed the Sweetzer Maisonettes as an alternative to the usual style of housing found in southern California, one that provides a lot of comfort in a compact and well organized structure.
Located a at Sweetzer and Norton in West Hollywood, California, USA, the structure contains ten two story townhouses stacked one on top of the other in a building with four floors. This organization offers an original home with a lot of flexibility and functionality while also featuring an attractive design that is very much needed in the dynamic and dense life of California.
Each of the ten homes is linked to a central courtyard set towards the Sweetzer Avenue thus allowing the inhabitants to interact with each other and truly become a community. The openings on the facades allow natural light and cross ventilation to be optimal in the living areas and the bedrooms and three of the units on top also feature private decks on the roof.
