Join us September 30th, 2023 for a tour of two houses by Anonymous Architects. Each built a decade apart as a primary residence for principal Simon Storey and his wife Jen Holmes, the two homes explore how to build on narrow lots. Working within the physical constraints of these two sites, Storey explores the possibilities and limitations of compact urban infill.

Here's a sneak peek of what awaits you:

Eel's Nest: A Masterpiece of Urban Living

Step into the realm of compact and efficient urban living with Eel's Nest. Storey ingeniously utilized every square foot of this 15-foot wide lot in Echo Park. The result? A live-work haven that defies convention.

Key Features:
  • Lot Size: 780 sq. ft.
  • Original Building Size: 370 sq. ft.
  • Vertical Build for Optimal Space Usage
  • Cement Plaster Exterior for Fire Resistance
  • Abundant Natural Light and Open Interiors

The Box: Redefining Proportions

Witness the transformation of physical constraints into architectural innovation with The Box. Designed on a narrow and deep lot, this residence pushes boundaries in every sense.

Key Features:
  • Striking Panoramic Windows for Expansive Views
  • Unique Proportions: 18' wide x 100' long
