Shown here as three stories, the KieranTimberlake LivingHome 1 is actually a flexible design offering multiple configurations to suit your lot, budget, and tastes. Build a simple granny flat and carport, or scale up to two or three stories for a remarkably spacious and private urban oasis on the narrowest of lots.
The clever shape of the second and third stories creates secluded (and secure) outdoor living spaces, while separating the bedrooms into their own private suites. The large living room and open-plan kitchen and dining area both open onto the second-floor deck, creating a breezy, connected space that’s perfect for entertaining. Full-height windows throughout the home provide abundant natural daylight—even if surrounded by tall buildings—and accentuate the home’s chic, modern aesthetic.
The KieranTimberlake LivingHome 1 was developed in response to L.A.’s small lot ordinance, and its innovative “kit of parts” design makes it perfect for tricky, urban infill properties. Homebuyers configure their own ideal variation, then Plant constructs the plumbing and mechanical core as a single modular unit. Panels are used for the rest of the home, making it efficient to build, deliver, and install, even on tight lots.
