This downtown work-live space on Union Avenue was featured in Dwell magazine in fall 2007, a story that look at how an artist transformed a former adult magazine warehouse into this two-bedroom, two bath loft. According to Dwell, the biggest challenge in the conversion was the courtyard. "Los Angeles is not exempt from heavy rainfall, so to keep the glass-walled space from becoming a fish tank, [the owner] designed a hardwood deck above what is essentially a giant shower pan, tilted down toward a corner drain." The home hit the market for $1.499 million about two months ago, and has already dropped to $1.29 million.
