Architect: Struere

This office building’s expansive glazing opens the interior spaces to the surrounding environment and enhances the wellness quality of the workplace. By placing emphasis on transparency and by blurring the building perimeter through a series of balconies, terraces and lookouts, the work environment promotes communication and synergy. Continuous cornice lines frame verandas and direct views to the mountains and ocean. The design celebrates Santa Monica. At the Northwest corner a projected ‘picture window’ captures the unique ocean sunset views. A segment of the glazed façade along Wilshire is angled to reflect the Pacific horizon.
