"OUR favorite accommodation on a recent five-city trip to Europe: a studio apartment in Paris. It is a gem of a place, owned by an American in Thousand Oaks.

When it comes to living in a small space, double duty is key. No inch can be wasted. Take a recent office I created inside a client's 1920s Los Angeles studio apartment. One main room held the bed, lounge chairs, dressers, bookcase and TV cabinet. Fitting in all these pieces of furniture was no small feat, and we were left no space for a desk - and all the things that go along with working from home. How did we create an office in the studio? The answer was the closet. The closet was largely vacant because a dressing area stored most of the client's clothes.

BERLIN - My husband, Alan, and I were on our way from L.A. to Budapest, Hungary - our first trip to Eastern Europe. We had to change planes somewhere, and that somewhere happened to be Berlin, a frequent hub for travel to Northern and Eastern European destinations. We had heard that Berlin was an up-and-coming artists' community, often compared with L.A. Instead of sentencing ourselves to a long layover at the airport, we decided to spend a long weekend in Berlin. We expected three days of prowling contemporary art galleries mixed with sobering visits to historical sites (the Brandenburg Gate, the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, a glimpse of where the Berlin Wall once stood)

SAN FRANCISCO - The tiny apartments are touted as "affordable by design. " New York City has launched a pilot project to test them out. Boston is doing it too. But here in San Francisco, where a growing number of residents are being priced out of the housing market by a revived tech economy, city leaders are considering the smallest micro-units of all. At a minimum 150 square feet of living space - 220 when you add the bathroom, kitchen and...

Sam Michel was in love with Los Angeles. Born and raised on the East Coast, he felt he fit best on the West. He lived for music, hunting down strange videos and tinkering with broken-down objects. L.A., he thought, would let him grow as an artist, free to explore without stricture. He came to CalArts to study photography, but he wasn't one to stay on the path. For his senior project, which was photo-less, he improvised on a piano in a public gallery and built an art installation in which casts of his arms held a backyard hot tub in the air. After graduation, he went home to South Salem, N.Y. But L.A. kept tugging.

Until the cockroaches, mice and fleas took it over, the historic Boyle Hotel was once the "jewel" of Boyle Heights. For decades, it was a landing spot for mariachis, who frequented the nearby Mariachi Plaza in search of gigs at weddings and quinceaneras . But in late 2010, the living conditions had become so poor that dozens of tenants were told to move out to make way for a $24-million renovation. For Martin Mayorga, that was a relief. The 44-year-old mariachi is one of dozens of people finally moving back this month into the converted apartment building, which now has 51 units of affordable housing, commercial spaces, a community room and a mariachi center.

A man suspected in a deadly car-to-car shooting in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip was arrested Thursday at a Studio City apartment complex, bringing an end to a weeklong manhunt. Los Angeles police and FBI agents surrounded the suburban apartment complex in the 4100 block of Arch Drive about noon and ordered Ammar Harris to surrender. Officers said there was a woman inside the apartment where he was holed up; she was not arrested. Harris, 26, is being held on suspicion of murder and is expected to be extradited back to Nevada.

Question: The home I just bought has a workshop that was converted to a studio apartment, but no one told me that the conversion was not permitted. Now the city wants me to convert it back. I used all my money to buy the property and can't afford the construction costs. No one disclosed this to me: not my home inspector, the agent, the appraiser or the seller. Do I have any recourse? Answer: Let's run through the list: The home inspector, if he was sharp and experienced, should have advised you to consult the building department to verify permits for the conversion.

It was supposed to be a brief stop at the Primadonna casino, 43 miles south of Las Vegas, but one poker game led to another. By 3 a.m. May 25, 1997, Jeremy Strohmeyer and David Cash were tired of hanging around the arcade, waiting for David's dad. Bored, the two 18-year-olds decided to urinate on two coin-operated games. David chose Big Bertha, whose polka-dot dress flared when players hurled balls into her gaping red mouth. Jeremy selected a helicopter game. Then a wall socket.

A smoldering fire in the walls of a three-story apartment building sent smoke into the sky above Studio City Friday, but caused no injuries, the Los Angeles Fire Department said. The fire began about 7:20 p.m. in the building in the 4200 block of north Laurel Canyon Boulevard. Firefighters were removing wall-paneling to determine the source of the fire, but it was believed to have been caused by workers using a torch for repair work, said fire department spokesman Jim Wells.

Haven, a young Los Angeles-based rock band, has a gritty sound, a soulful lead singer, some catchy original tunes and the drive to make it big someday. What the band doesn't have is the $175 an hour it costs to record its music in a professional studio. But thanks to advanced digital technology, cost is not the impediment that it was in the past when aspiring musicians were at the mercy of expensive recording studios and demanding record executives.
