This Guest House, located behind a typical Southern California bungalow, and within a conventional urban neighborhood grid, addresses the requirements of a growing family needing more space for guests. In this scenario, an additional level is added to an existing garage to accommodate these spatial requirements. Strict municipal regulations create unique compact spatial conditions which consolidate functions and activities. The existing garage is re-formed with the new addition to achieve a congruent and autonomous form.
