Second Home Hollywood is a contemporary interpretation of LA’s early 20th-century bungalow court residences and incorporates ideas and elements that expand upon Southern California’s architectural legacy. The campus is made up of 60 single-story, oval-shaped studios, with yellow, lily pad-like roof structures. Each independent structure is wrapped in curved, transparent, acrylic walls, providing unobscured connections with the outdoors. The individual pods, linked by winding pathways, are nestled in lush gardens brimming with more than 6,500 plants. Second Home’s campus also includes a historic building designed in the 1960s by Paul Williams - the first African-American to be admitted to the American Institute of Architects. Second Home has protected this historic building - and transformed it into an open and inclusive space with a publicly accessible cafe, bookshop and cultural venue.
