Inside a West Hollywood Complex Brimming With Greenery

2023 Best of Year Winner for Domestic Multiunit Residential

Patrick Tighe, the Interior Design Hall of Fame member, has configured the 13 units in this new four-story building in West Hollywood around an interior courtyard that provides residents with privacy while also allowing natural light and air to flow through the apartments, each of which has a private terrace. On the street-facing elevation, the 38,000-square-foot concrete, steel, and glass structure of Larrabee sports a facade-spanning brise-soleil that serves as an energy-conserving thermal barrier, among the efforts to make the project minimally dependent on fossil fuels and also give it a strong identity. A two-story concrete arbor defines the entry; inside, amenities include a ground-floor screening room, gym, and coworking space, plus a parking garage in the basement. Above it all, the rooftop boasts a photovoltaic array and a planted terrace offering panoramic views, from the Hollywood Hills to the city below.
