Urban legend

Relocating has never been more appealing thanks to Gardner 1050, a multi-unit housing development in Los Angeles.

A central courtyard with a pair of 30-foot-high trellises, cement board cladding, and translucent glass panels serves as a dramatic backdrop for the modern, 27,000-square-foot structure designed by Culver City's Lorcan O'Herlihy Architects.
