The complex of six one- and two-story buildings located at 7219 Hampton Avenue (Normandie Towers) is constructed in the Tudor Revival architectural style. The buildings are an example of the "theatrically" styled cottage groupings constructed to appeal to individuals involved in the motion picture industry. The buildings are located one-block from the former Pickford-Fairbanks Studios (now The Lot). The apartment grouping reflects significant geographical patterns of growth and development in West Hollywood. Normandie Towers was constructed in 1925, at a time when the expansion of the film industry was drawing members of the industry to the Hollywood Area. Cottage clusters such as Normandie Towers provided an intimate, low-density housing alternative to members of the motion picture industry, in close proximity to major studios.
