Modative was founded as an architecture firm in 2006. After over 12 years in practice in Los Angeles, we saw the opportunity to bring clarity to the updated 2017 Accessory Dwelling Unit Ordinance, the same way we started publishing extensive information on the Small lot Subdivision Ordinance back in 2008.
Through our specialization in helping create over 300 Small lot Subdivision Homes, we have learned the in's and out's of designing, permitting and building residential units in the City of Los Angeles. We are now bringing that expertise and one-stop-shop approach to Accessory Dwelling Units.
Modative and Modative Build are fully licensed architecture and construction operations with extensive experience designing and building efficient homes in small spaces.
