Gregory Ain’s International Style Master Work | 2845 Avenel Street

Designed in 1947 by famed architect Gregory Ain, the 10-unit Avenel Cooperative Housing Project helped define Los Angeles as the center of the modernist movement in American architecture. Restored in 2022 by architect Michael Folonis, FAIA, this rare condo unit in the masterful mid-century complex is primed for its next prideful owner.

Los Angeles, CA 90039

$1,395,000| 2 Beds | 1 Bath | 992 Sq. Ft. | Built in 1947

Ain’s aim for the project was to adapt the best features of a hillside commune, garden apartment, and suburban house into one unique whole.

Rendered in Ain’s signature International Style architecture, the beautiful space is highlighted with flexible interiors, which can literally transform into an open plan layout and back again for ideal movement and flow when you are entertaining and peace and privacy when you are not.

The lovely living room opens up to an expansive garden deck and terrace.

The sleek kitchen features marble counters, pantry storage, and eat-in bar seating.

The kitchen also has top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry.

Beyond Ain’s imaginative site planning, these “flexible houses” employ sliding partition walls.

Because of these partition walls, this corner unit can be configured however its next owner sees fit: as a one, two, or three bedroom residence.

The restoration includes new plumbing and electrical, custom windows and doors, beautiful flooring, HVAC system, and a tankless water heater.

The private deck offers the perfect spot for lounging and al fresco dinners under the stars.

Currently configured as a massive loft-like one bedroom, the home has beautiful picture windows for enjoying views of the Silver Lake hillside.

The other two possible bedrooms offer individual offices, libraries, painting studios, writing rooms, or guest quarters. The possibilities are endless.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Avenel Cooperative Housting Project is a magnet for architecture buffs and each of the unit’s owners feel immense pride and gratitude and care for the homes they so luckily are able to inhabit.

There’s also a dedicated laundry room with a stacked washer and dryer, sink, storage, and a skylight.

2845 Avenel Street is a singular and stylish modern home with incredibly sharp lines, individual composition, and brilliant maximization of space. The Avenel Cooperative Housing Project is one of Ain’s greatest achievements.
