CONTEXT STUDY
The anticipated arrival of the Expo light rail line from Los Angeles to the Ocean propelled this vision for urban living close to the Santa Monica terminus.

Along the street, neighborhood  serving retail space is configured  to encourage active pedestrian use with widened sidewalks, outdoor seating and bicycle parking. Above, two hundred and fifty units  of varying sized units  flank upper level courtyards to create nested communities. The Broadway facade bends back to maximize views towards the ocean for residents while south and  west facing apartments have movable screens that provide personalized control of sun and privacy.
