Drawing from lean-tos, stucco boxes, and bungalows, Lean-to ADU offers a hybrid visual language that complements a wide range of LA front houses. The overall form is a textured black stucco and metal shed roof, spanning 8- to 16-feet in height, that sits neatly above a smooth white stucco box. From the east and west elevations, the roof is seen as a traditional right triangle with a gentle 3:12 pitch, while the south elevation reveals a black rectangular panel that slips down the side of the home and makes room for a small terrace offering occupants an outdoor experience while maintaining privacy from the front house. Landscape design conceived in collaboration with Martin Rickles Studio draws from the geometric forms that make up the home, with plant beds outlined in wavy metal edgers and filled with native California varietals.
