On a hillside in Silver Lake, framing is now complete for SuperBungalows, an infill housing development from Los Angeles-based real estate and design firm SuperLA. Located at 3520 W. Marathon Street, the project replaced an early 20th century single-family dwelling with a new three-story building which will contain nine one- and two-bedroom apartments. …Aaron van Schaik… “Our building form is heavily inspired by case-study/Mid-Century Modern architecture with a focus on connected indoor-outdoor living and sustainability initiatives. …Notably, the project incorporates cross-laminated timber as a building material – one of a growing number of L.A. projects to rely on this construction method following an update to the state’s building code earlier this year. Completion of SuperBungalows is expected in mid-2023, according to van Schaik.
