The Westlake Duplex began with the desire for a different lifestyle and an unusually wide corner lot. Twin 2,000 SF units entangle a pair of condominiums to make the property affordable, and offer modest sized homes with a level of finish and care not typically found in speculative properties.

Here, the onerous codes that define a duplex’s required ‘living wall’ are used to their best advantage such that each neighbor enjoys her own adjacent exterior spaces. The homes are designed to embrace a lifestyle that easily moves between inside and out, and take advantage of the pleasures of living amidst a collection of mature Live Oak trees. Courtyards expand the perceived size of their adjacent rooms and generous roof decks embrace the tree canopies from a different vantage point. Inside, light and shadow are introduced from unexpected sources and add a sense of wonder to the ensemble.
