Welcome Projects is based in Los Angeles playfully revisiting the vernacular to tell stories through design one project at a time.
We believe the outfitting of everyday life should be durable, accessible, and fanciful. Led by Laurel Consuelo Broughton, Welcome Projects’ studio services include architectural and industrial design, creative consulting, branding, and ideation. Our body of work is big (buildings, houses, interiors), smaller (installations, furniture), and little (handbags, games, toys). We like to collaborate closely with our clients and friends to inject a sense of fun, suspense and narrative into the spaces and objects we interact with and depend upon on a daily basis. Our projects can be seen in the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, on clever. com and more.
We’ve nicknamed our Standard Plan Accessory Dwelling Unit The Breadbox for its curve-topped walls and slight resemblance to that vintage counter accessory. In our design, we renew Southern California’s language of stucco and clay tile into a handsome garden cottage. There are two-floor plan variations that are designed to be flexible for a multitude of uses. Extend your current living space, use it as a home office, let out for additional income, or all three. Different porch options and door and window combinations can be configured to meet backyard conditions to expand living spaces further. The Breadbox has a compact footprint that dreams big. Produced in collaboration with C.W. Howe Partners, a structural and civil engineering firm in Los Angeles.
