Apartment Facade Study, Santa Monica
A fifty year old three story apartment development in Santa Monica needed rehabilitation from deferred maintenance and changes through the years. The entry to the complex had become lost in the mix of landscape and buildings and the new owners wanted to establish a better sense of community and upgraded appearance along the street. Kaplan Chen Kaplan provided a variety of approaches working both with facade design as well as creating a more visible entry. The design treatments created a new image for the residential buildings along their long street facades.
