Los Angeles is full of unique residential architecture and this Westside complex is as singular as they come.

Built in 2008, it consists of two separate single-family homes built in the style of industrial lofts topped by arched, barrel-like ceilings with exposed trusses for an especially dramatic effect.

Per the listing, the residences were designed by late architect David Ming-Li Lowe. They hold two bedrooms and three bedrooms, respectively, with a combined 3,648 square feet of living space.

Other interior features include clerestory windows, walls of glass, concrete and hardwood floors, and open living spaces filled with built-in shelving.

The complex sits on a 7,373-square-foot lot with a pair of two-car garages and a small back garden. The back unit also has a private patio surrounded by shoots of bamboo, while the front unit has a partially covered deck with plenty of space for outdoor seating.

The two homes last sold in 2010 for $1.26 million. Today, they’re asking $2.7 million.
