Mechanical Driveway

While collaborating on a Hollywood Residence a local subcontractor furnished a 4 car parking lift system in a two car garage. TR Wurster received and installed the lift system in addition to fabricating and installing the surrounding steel structural components and some finish components. Since this was a distressed project having been partially completed in a very poor manner by a terminated GC, ADC analyzed and repaired the structural deficiencies caused by faulty workmanship while resolving the structural and architectural design conflicts. During the analytical modeling of existing conditions using referential point cloud data, ADC discovered that a low clearance sports car couldn’t enter the garage due to the existing approach elevation datum established by the street approach. ADC came to the rescue by designing and modeling an innovative mechanical solution to solve this problem of geometry to resolve and restore the intended function to this garage.

Little Valley

The Client had an existing no-frills stable in her Hidden Hills estate where she wanted to not only provide residence to her equine companions, but to expand the social program with her beloved riding partners. ADC reimagined her existing stable to facilitate a social program where human and horse could enjoy association in a casual and comfortable way, each mammal having the highest order of creature comforts. By integrating an indoor and outdoor living area with an open program where the horses could join humans for interaction at will, a relaxed environment complimenting the architecture of the other buildings within this estate compound was crafted to facilitate a cross-species socialization program that engenders friendship and delight without obstruction, while allowing the pleasant Southern California climate to open the walls creating a seamless and comfortable indoor/outdoor experience in any weather condition.

June Cabana

ADC was engaged by a discerning client who wanted to add a poolside outdoor living space to their spacious and historic estate built in 1929 in Hancock Park. The area needed to complement the existing Spanish architecture while providing the bustling family and their guests with a outdoor space for relaxation and entertainment. ADC collaborated with the client to develop the design, procure the entitlements, and TRWurster built the structure and self-performed most of the work. For those items that TRWurster could not effectively perform in house ADC managed the remainder of the procurement and installation to help the client complete the project in an efficient and cost-effective way. An open cabana with exposed beam ceilings was conceived including a fireplace, outdoor television, lounge, and eating area; open countertops provide the perfect poolside back drop to build memories of friends and family during those delightful California evenings!

Sorrento

ADC was engaged to provide extensive design services for this upscale Pacific Palisades estate including producing interior millwork design packages. Bespoke millwork with ornate detailing adorned every room of the house, so each room required thought and planning using TRWurster’s structural installation as the basis for coordination of the interior finishes. The development of the interior finishes levereged our structural BIM as the framework for design development. Detailed millwork plans, 3D renderings, and virtual walkthroughs were produced and presented by ADC along the way so that the Owner could make informed decisions and provide feedback as we responded to each and every one of the Owner’s preferences. This coordination was performed with accuracy before proceeding with the work, all of which produced stunning results with a high level of efficiency!
