L.A.'s Modern-Home Subdivision

Recalling the look of a British row house, The Mews in Los Angeles' Atwater Village is a new kind of urban subdivision. Unlike sprawling suburban subdivisions of earlier decades, these 23 individual contemporary-styled concrete-and-glass townhomes, from architects Corsini + Stark, are lined up in two parallel rows in the midst of one of L.A.'s older neighborhoods. The development was made possible by Los Angeles' 2004 small-lot subdivision ordinance, that allows builders to create denser, in-fill projects in areas zoned commercial or multi-family.
