Winner of both the AIA Honor Award and the AIA National Housing Award

26th Street Affordable Housing in Santa Monica, CA

Painted by Concepts In Color and winner of both the AIA Honor Award and the AIA National Housing Award, 26th Street Affordable Housing is the product of an exhaustive community outreach mission.

In addition to input from the city of Santa Monica and the community at large, the final colorful design takes into account the region’s mild climate, historical precedents of Southern California Modernist architecture, and the human scale of residents and pedestrians. The design of the 44-unit apartment building incorporates dual-glazed and laminated windows along both street-facing sides to eliminate street noise. (continued here)
