Formerly a Garage: A 400-Square-Foot One-Bedroom House in LA
We brake for grottages: garages converted into cottages (our own Michelle Slatalla invented the term for her own place). This one is the work of LA house flipper-turned designer-builder Shanty Wijaya of Allprace. Wijaya replaced the crumbling dwelling on the property with a spec construction, and rebuilt the remains of its one-car garage as this companion ADU for use as a guest house, pool house, work space, or rental.
The new main house takes its inspiration from Catalan modernism and the ADU is a mini-me version, filled with a high/low mix of solutions for small-space living. Join us for a tour.
