Why build an ADU?
Call them in-law units, granny flats, or backyard cottages, Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs) are secondary units that have their own address and can be rented out.
Building a new ADU in your backyard or converting your existing garage can give single-family homeowners more flexibility both spatially and financially.
FOR YOU extend your living space, have a studio, or rent out your front house
FOR FAMILY OR FRIENDS host visitors, have your in-laws or kids move in
FOR RENT rent out for extra income to long-term tenants
Either way you use the space, your property value will appreciate immediately. An ADU can pay for itself in less than 15 years and provide you additional income for retirement.

Ok, now I want one. What’s the process?
Bunch Design is a practice that creates high quality modern design. We put a strong emphasis on the inventive use of materials, the qualities of light, use of structure, and the relationship between the space and its users. We consider these issues to be more important than working in a particular style and hope that each project will be an original interpretation of client, site, brief and budget.
Bunch does not specialize in a particular style, but rather considers our specialization as bringing quality ideas and spatial experiences to each project. For us, design is a collaboration between many disciplines, experts, and craftsmen all coming together to make a clear idea and dream a reality. This is the genesis of our company’s name. We hope there is a project that can bring you into our group.

our ADU approach
California has a rich tradition of thoughtful design coupled with new building methods that allow for good design and natural affordability: light and space, craftwork and mass production, privacy and connection. Here we see home not merely as housing units but as pieces of the city that deserve care and stewardship.
These ADUs will exist in the context of their physical and spatial environments and welcome home family members, neighbors and fellow Angelenos. They will expand their boundaries by connection private, semi-private, and public spaces. Thoughtful design will help ADUs borrow views to bring in light , create a new sky with high ceilings, and release spaces that are typically under utilized.
Let’s get started!
