Description
The Park Plannned Homes is a tract of 28 houses in Altadena, designed by Ain with landscape architect Garrett Eckbo. They have elements of an open concept feel, with a modular building design of 12' x 16' modular units that allowed for common finishes, hardware and equipment. The housing tract was built on a slope, so each property was leveled off and is stepped down from the one above. Along with all of the houses having the garage and service area in the front (and a private patio), the retaining walls and landscaping provide privacy for the homeowners.
