A highly anticipated Beverly Hills project from MAD Architects’ Ma Yansong—who is also designing the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art in Exposition Park—is scheduled to open this fall, developer Palisades announced this week.
Called Gardenhouse, the complex is made up of three types of residences, from townhouses to single-story “flats.” In total, Gardenhouse contains 18 units.
Described in a press release as a “village on the hill,” Gardenhouse is raised off the ground, wrapped in a giant green wall of succulents and native plants. The five-story structure sits along Wilshire Boulevard at Stanley, about three blocks west of the Saban Theatre.
Pitched-roof residences form a kind of wall around an open-air courtyard with gardens, tall trees, and a “reflecting pool.”
Within the units, high-end finishes and details abound—Miele appliances and Italian cabinets in the the kitchens, bathrooms with soaking tubs and heated floors, and retractable walls of glass that erase the barriers between indoors and outdoors. Interiors are by Rottet Studio.
“With Gardenhouse, we propose a new paradigm for the West Coast architectural vernacular amid the sprawling density of Los Angeles,” Yansong said in a statement.
Sales for the project will begin this summer, with pricing from $3.7 million.
