Residential Architecture: Eels Nest House by Anonymous Architects: “..The name Eel’s Nest is often given to very narrow lots in Japan, those typically 3 meters or 15 feet in width. The width of this lot in Echo Park is exactly 15 feet and architect Simon Storey felt it was the perfect site to experiment with compact and efficient urban living. By building vertically, simply and minimally, he was able to use every square foot of space to create a live-work house..Warm wood floors and cabinets run through every level and light penetrates into the living and first level spaces by creating an open stair at the 2nd level. A roof deck, which rises above the dense urban development, has views that extend as far as the Hollywood sign and the San Gabriel Mountains..” Ample glazing, natural light, roof terrace..
