Transforming North Hollywood with a Modern Craftsman Detached ADU

Client’s Vision for a Detached ADU

Our client, a seasoned real estate investor with numerous properties across the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, approached us with a vision for a Detached ADU. The property in North Hollywood was the perfect candidate for this project. With a preference for a Bi-level ADU featuring 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, the client aimed to maximize the size allowable under the City of Los Angeles’ ADU ordinance.

Planning the Detached ADU

Assessing the Property

After thoroughly assessing the property, we concluded that a Bi-level Detached ADU would perfectly suit the spacious suburban lot. The expansive area offered an ideal canvas for creating a comfortable and modern living space. Collaborating closely with the owner, we proposed a Modern Craftsman ADU, drawing inspiration from the prevalent craftsman-style homes in Los Angeles and the surrounding neighborhood.

Design Considerations

Utilizing the entire 1,200 square feet allowance permitted under the ADU ordinance, we focused on designing an efficient and comfortable floor plan. The goal was to create a ADU that was not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing. Highlights of the design include 14′ vaulted ceilings in the Living Room and Kitchen, which provide an open and airy feel, complemented by 9′ ceilings throughout the rest of the ADU.

Constructing the Detached ADU

Modern Craftsman Aesthetic

The Modern Craftsman aesthetic was carefully incorporated into every aspect of the Detached ADU. From the exterior finishes to the interior details, the design exudes the timeless charm and character associated with craftsman homes. This style is not only popular in Los Angeles but also enhances the appeal and marketability of the property.

Efficient Use of Space

The Detached ADU features an efficient layout that maximizes the use of available space. The bi-level design allows for a separation of living and sleeping areas, providing privacy and convenience. The open floor plan in the living areas creates a spacious environment, perfect for both relaxation and entertaining.

Success of the Detached ADU

High-Quality Construction

The outcome of this project was a top-notch Detached ADU, meticulously designed and constructed to meet high standards. The attention to detail in both design and construction ensured that the ADU was not only visually appealing but also built to last. High-quality materials and finishes were used throughout, adding to the overall value of the property.

Exceptional Rental Value

The ADU’s success as a rental property surpassed expectations. The owner achieved $500 more in monthly rent than initially projected, demonstrating the high demand for well-designed ADUs in the area. Within the first weekend of listing, the ADU received multiple rental applications, highlighting its attractiveness to potential tenants.

Benefits of a Detached ADU

Lucrative Investment

The success of the Modern Craftsman Detached ADU underscores its potential as a lucrative investment. For real estate investors,  ADUs offer a unique opportunity to generate sustained passive income. By adding an ADU to an existing property, investors can significantly increase their rental income and overall property value.

Meeting Market Demand

Detached ADUs are increasingly in demand, particularly in urban and suburban areas where space is at a premium. By creating additional living spaces on existing properties, homeowners and investors can meet the growing need for affordable and attractive rental units. This ADU project in North Hollywood is a prime example of how strategic design and construction can capitalize on this demand.

Long-Term Benefits of Detached ADUs

Flexibility and Versatility

One of the key advantages of Detached ADUs is their flexibility and versatility. They can serve multiple purposes, from rental units to guest houses or even home offices. This adaptability makes them a valuable addition to any property, capable of evolving with the needs of the homeowner or investor.

Enhancing Property Value

Adding a Detached ADU enhances the overall value of the property. In competitive real estate markets like Los Angeles, having a ADU can set a property apart and increase its appeal to potential buyers. This added value can translate into higher resale prices and greater long-term returns on investment.


The transformation of a North Hollywood property into a Modern Craftsman Detached ADU showcases the immense potential and benefits of ADU projects. Through careful planning, innovative design, and high-quality construction, we created a ADU that not only meets the needs of the client but also offers significant financial rewards. The success of this project underscores the viability of ADUs as a smart investment strategy, promising sustained passive income and enhanced property value.
