Willoughby Lofts, built in 2008, is an exceptional architectural town home development designed by noted architect Lorcan O'Herlihy situated on one of the best streets in West Hollywood. These spacious and open residences feature skylights, private gardens, white oak floors and kitchen with high end finishes.
The façade’s cutouts create a visual tunneling effect into the units and the street level similarly heightens community engagement. Entrances to the units abut the sidewalk, a rarity in the Los Angeles area. The building’s skin of stainless steel mesh, mounted on a custom bracket system, produces a dynamic and engaging moiré pattern. The material, which facilitates the growth of vines, welcomes the landscape onto the building itself.
Internally, multi-floor units deviate from the typical loft scheme of stacking walls, which yields a common and homogeneous layout for each unit. Instead, the line of division is staggered by floor such that each unit extends into the space of its adjacent neighbor. This introduces a variety of spaces that cater to robust and differentiated activity. The horizontal staggering also enables the insertion of open spaces, conceived as outdoor rooms that let in light and comprise a breathable edge within the densifying neighborhood.
Amenities include controlled access & secure parking.
