Archer Hollywood

Located on a narrow mid-block lot just behind the famed Musso & Frank Grill and two blocks from the iconic Hollywood & Highland complex, the Archer Hollywood capitalizes on its urban location by offering 224 apartments, 24 of which are set aside for very low income households, to a diverse mix of young and working professionals wanting to live in the heart of the Hollywood action.

Units in this 6-story development range from 444-750 sf studios to 564-1,243 sf one- and two-bedroom layouts. Designs maximize compact yet open floorplan living by borrowing space ideas saving such as niches, sliding walls and built-in storage from boat design. Supplementing the residences are a range of high-end community-centric amenities geared towards work-life balance. The development includes a dedicated coworking space with conference room and community-wide WiFi, a community clubroom with kitchen, a private screening room with Karaoke, two roof decks with barbecue, fire pits, lounge areas and walking path as well as a pool deck and spa with cabanas and a double-level fitness center.

Exterior facades along the two vehicular facades draw inspiration from the neighborhood’s iconic architecture and industrial roots, juxtaposing an undulating metal and mesh element against white stucco that is punctuated by deeply recessed balconies painted with bright ceiling colors. The interplay and use of 7-foot-high windows and glass-fronted balconies brings light deep into units and the development, and combined with a stepped building mass, allows the multiple roof decks to comfortably integrate living and community spaces.
