Architecture Firm (Architecture & Planning)

This firm was hired to design a luxury apartment complex and an adjoining five-story parking structure. The complex itself was four stories tall and included 173 dwelling units, with eight different floor plans. The firm determined the optimal design for the least amount of fault line involvement, designing a five-story edifice around the parking structure. They experimented with several alternatives including placing the pool area at the fault line (since it occupied a substantial amount of the parcel) and modifying the front elevation of the property near the beach to ensure the building was structurally sound.
