October 7th, 2015 by Sanjay Gangal

G House is a 610 sq. ft. (57 sq. m.) secondary guest unit up on the hill of Monterey Park near Downtown Los Angeles. In a tiny, odd-shaped site, with a lot of code restrictions and a tight budget, Design Initiatives successfully created a functional floor layout scheme with a garage, kitchen, dining, living areas and a full bathroom.

In other municipalities if the garage is not required, could be easily transformed into a bedroom. In the same time G House inspires a special and unique experience for the guests of the main house, 1950’s California bungalow. The proposal fits in the context of the existing structure and achieves a harmonious compatibility with it.

G House is structurally divided into 2 pre-fabricated modules which could be transported on a flat bed truck. The owners of standard and bigger lots will have the opportunity to add-on, combine and re-arrange different scenarios with the repetitive modules. Some of the possible variations are shown on the diagrams.

The full height store-front display windows are opened to the view of Monterey Park hills across. Embedded in the ceiling MecoShade could be pulled down when more privacy is needed. For the exterior sheeting is proposed an open joint system of resin coated plywood panels with exposed natural color of the spruce veneer. The landscape is composed of natural wood chips and local plants which do not need watering.
