Joshua Tree, CA
1344 sf each
To meet an extremely low budget of $68/sf (including land, labor, permitting, and utilities) Yeh + Jerrard developed a set of simple and modular construction details so the house could be built by semi-skilled labor with off-the-shelf materials and limited tools.
One building housing two distinct contemporary restaurants—a Chinese restaurant featuring a circular entrance and floating clouds of paper lanterns, and an Italian restaurant that blocks out interior spaces with an assemblage of solid planes and rectilinear forms.
Steinberg & Sons
Los Feliz, Los Angeles, CA
Interior redesign of a boutique clothing store. Yeh + Jerrard did the interior layout as well as retail display and lighting design, working within a highly constrained budget.
