This BuildItGreen-rated project combines the values of community, diversity and sustainability with the sophisticated ease of beach living. The dwellings housed in two buildings range from efficiency studios to full live-work units, serving a wide array of income levels and lifestyles. Neighborhood shops activate the major street frontage and a row of live-work businesses line the secondary frontage. A broad linear public plaza is carved from the space between the two mixed-use buildings, creating synergy of both retail and residential uses.
The exterior architecture delivers a sophisticated contemporary beach resort aesthetic, featuring angled glass towers reminiscent of lifeguard stands, clear glass balconies and custom wood siding recalling driftwood. Modern frame façades and sleek horizontal lines, rendered in stone and acrylic tiles, offer a sensitive interpretation of beach modern. The embrace of surf culture extends into the project amenities, with circular motifs and wave forms throughout the interiors and landscape design.
