Abiding to the constraints of a small development project, these four villas, located in West Los Angeles, display their main characteristics on the inside: a spatially complex sequence of rooms and open spaces in the tradition of Adolf Loos's "Raumplan" - open up the three story project and emanate a lofty feel, despite providing conventional programmatic necessities. The exterior consists of layered privacy; the outdoor is public while private outdoors are proposed through a large roof terrace.

The lot consists of four units, paired in two different types each sized to approximately 2,000 square feet. The lot is symmetrically divided to maximize the surface areas of each unit and allow all four sides to be naturally lit.

The Hoko Villas are wood frame structures with stucco facades.
2007-2008. The project awaits construction.
