Renowned architecture and design publication, Metropolis, features Gardenhouse in a new article, highlighting the Beverly Hills development’s three distinctive residential offerings and speaking with architect and MAD architects founder, Ma Yansong, about his inspiration for the project—the first housing creation by MAD in the United States. Described by Metropolis as “an upscale Melrose Place” with designs that blend “city-mouse and country-mouse sensibilities,” Gardenhouse’s unique urban enclave is centered around a lush garden atrium, expressly crafted to provide a connection with nature and a sense of community:

“A tiny township of peaked-roof houses perches atop a mound of greenery—an artificial mountain meant to evoke Los Angeles’s hills. ‘It’s almost a cartoon,’ says Ma, adding that he was struck by the tall hedges that surround L.A. houses, whose foliage conceals all but the rooftops from prying eyes. And yes, the concept is borderline too cute. Still, MAD Architects, with L.A.–based executive architect and landscape architect Gruen Associates and interior designer Rottet Studio, deftly introduced a novel housing type to the city.”
