Why did we build it?

Allie Rossi is a young professional and artist living in Los Altos, California. With steep rents in Palo Alto, she was looking for opportunities to save money, build credit, and invest in an asset that would create value now and continue adding it for years to come. Allie and her parents wanted to build her a home of her own. Taking advantage of their property in Los Altos was a great option, and so their ADU project was born.

Your Favorite Things about the ADU

The best part of this job was seeing the owner infuse so much of their personality with wall colors, layout, and bespoke details that made it be super representative of this artist’s new home. The photos really speak for themselves and make up this incredibly unique backyard home.

What ADU Magazine loves about the Rossi ADU

The Rossi ADU is an excellent representation of an Accessory Dwelling Unit that utilizes every inch of space to create an airy, eclectic, and unique multifunctional open living home. We love the bold colors of the bathroom, the artist’s loft/office, and the thoughtfully designed peninsula kitchen island that could potentially seat four for entertaining.
