Norton Towers on the Court

Norton Towers-on-the-Court, a six-unit condominium project in West Hollywood, is a prototype that successfully implements the city's Courtyard Standards on a narrow lot. This design establishes an urban courtyard community of townhouses, maximizing light, space, and gardens while fostering individual identity and a sense of grandeur, privacy, intimacy, and luxury. The linear arrangement ensures each condominium receives ample light and air, featuring its own four-story glass tower that allows daylight to reach deep into each unit. At night, these towers transform into dramatic illuminated lanterns.

"West Hollywood has a legacy of courtyard housing. This project, however, is the first one to implement the standard on such a narrow lot - and to do it successfully."
