The massing of the building is broken down into several smaller components. The volumes are separated by voids, each accentuated with landscape. The roof line is reminiscent of iconic home imagery and interpreted in a new composition that ties the individual building components together. An interior courtyard at the ground level provides a landscaped respite for the residents. The units are accessed from the central courtyard that serves as shared space for the residents and includes a playground for the children. Commercial space, social services and amenities are located at the ground level. Parking is provided below grade. Ample common spaces are located throughout the building and at the rooftop terrace that opens to the North, with views of downtown Santa Monica and out towards the Santa Monica Bay. The highly sustainable building will attain LEED platinum status when complete.
