Los Angeles-based developer RC Homes has broken ground on a new set of small-lot houses in Silver Lake.

Hyperion Silver Lake, named for its address at 853 Hyperion Avenue, will consist of eight-single family dwellings, each featuring three-bedroom and 3.5-bathroom floor plans.

Modative, a Culver City-based architecture firm which specializes in small-lot projects, designed each of the three-story houses.  Each will include a walk-out deck and a two-car garage, as well as design features to curb water and energy uses.

Completion of Hyperion is expected in November of this year.

Elsewhere in Silver Lake, plans were recently announced for a similar nine-house small lot subdivision.
