Los Angeles-based real estate and design firm SuperLA has unveiled plans for a small infill development just east of the Bellevue Recreation Center in Silver Lake.

The project, which is named TerraceHouse, would rise from a property located at 3520 W. Marathon Street, replacing a single-family dwelling completed in the early 20th century.  Plans call for the construction of a three-story edifice containing nine one- and two-bedroom apartments, as well as a rooftop deck, a front yard, and atrium gardens. 

"We took inspiration from around Silver Lake when designing our project," said SuperLA's owner Aaron van Schaik via e-mail.  "Our building form is heavily inspired by case-study/Mid-Century Modern architecture with a focus on connected indoor-outdoor living and sustainability initiatives. Our unit form is influenced by that of bungalow courts, with no shared walls, light and air on all sides, large attached terraces, and thoughtfully designed interior layouts."

Plans for TerraceHouse emphasize sustainability.  SuperLA is planning the apartments without gas hookups, and intends to incorporate a solar array and stormwater capture features.  Additionally, the project will incorporate recycled building materials and be designed to enable natural ventilation.

Construction of TerraceHouse is expected to occur over a 12-to-month period, beginning as early as the third quarter of 2021, according to van Schaik.
