Washington & Oxford Mixed Use

Kaplan Chen Kaplan prepared designs for a mixed use development for a commercial site located in a Historic Preservation Overlay Zone in Los Angeles. The neighborhood consists of blocks of decorative early twentieth century homes bordered by commercial streets that never fully developed. The program called for street level commercial space with forty units of live-work housing above. Due to the deterioration of the existing buildings, the owner requested schemes to rebuild the commercial space with housing above and parking below. We provided several designs including schemes to incorporate original decorative features and designs from the original time period.
