    Creating high design with low-budget materials is Mutlow's specialty. At Villa Flores, an affordable project in Los Angeles, a simple metal rooftop grid hides unsightly mechanical equipment.

“Being English. [I think] we're maybe more community-oriented over there. Also, at the Architectural Association I became interested in the effects of housing form on social interaction. In the United States, I had my ‘second grad school' at UCLA, where I had Professor Fred Case. He had been approached by [members of] an inner-city L.A. community. They asked him to help them and the whole class got involved. I ended up working in the community, Pico Union, for three-and-a-half years.”
