Upward Bound House: This 18 unit complex was once the site of a rundown motel with transient tenants. It got a complete make over by an all-star cast of LA interior designers. There was no budget, the designers were volunteering their time and creativity, and lots of donations were incorportated in the make over. Sustainable features were also utilized such as low flow toilets, doors made from 70% recycled content, and energy efficient windows.
