Designed in 1947 by native Los Angeles architect Gregory Ain, the 10-unit Avenel Cooperative Housing Project helped define Los Angeles as the center of the Modernist movement in American domestic architecture.  The project adapted the best features of a hillside commune, garden apartments, and suburban houses.  The whole was rendered in International Style modern architecture with radically flexible interiors.  Beyond Ain’s imaginative site planning, these truly “flexible houses” employ sliding partition walls  such that this unit with open living, dining and kitchen area, can be configured as a one, two, or three bedroom residence with 1 bath & private garden.   In recent years, the Avenel homes have undergone sympathetic restoration efforts.   This corner unit shares only 1 common wall and the large patio/outdoor living space provides spectacular views of the Rowena Reservoir and Griffith Observatory.  Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the ACH is a magnet for architecture buffs, but more importantly, it retains its modern appeal.
