About This Project

1224 Flores St

1224 Flores was built in 1928 and is included in the City’s Courtyard Thematic District. Each of the buildings incorporates a partially enclosed outdoor space that individual units share as a common area. Fireplaces, benches, water elements, and landscaping elaborate the courtyard spaces as outdoor living areas. Additionally, the buildings embody distinctive elements of craftsmanship, such as tile work, iron grilles, terra cotta work and carved wood, and an architectural style, reflected in such elements as roof type, fenestration, doors and detailing. The buildings in the Courtyard Thematic District reflect significant patterns of growth and settlement in West Hollywood. The increasing demand for housing that accompanied the rapid growth of the Los Angeles region in the 1920s was well-served by the high density of the courtyard building. The Fountain Corridor in particular possesses a high concentration of elaborate courtyard designs. The district’s location between Beverly Hills and Hollywood and adjacent to the developing Sunset Strip, made it an increasingly attractive area for luxurious residential development. This highly urbane district attracted numerous film personalities. (Photo Credit: Tony Coelho)
