2016 SoCal Award:
Best Architectural Series of Detached Homes


Located in Santa Ana, CA, this remarkable, modern residential community offers luxury amenities in the heart of Santa Ana. The 2.2-acre site has 278 units and achieves a density of 126 units per acre with 6 residential levels, 1 common area level, and 2 levels of subterranean parking. The Architect utilized a recent change to the local fire code, allowing the highest floor to increase from 55’ to 75’ above grade, which created a design opportunity to include an additional story plus mezzanines giving added value to the project. The top floor mezzanines provide views of the South Coast Metro area and beyond. Units range from studios to 3-bedroom units. With a contemporary and refined design, the community is finished with clean lines, featuring materials like fibercement and aluminum panels.  Community amenities include public plazas, media room, business center, lounge, state of the art fitness center, pool, clubhouse, pet park, rooftop yoga veranda, and outdoor living space all of which engage the residents.

  • The project utilized a recent change to the local fire code to add an extra story and mezzanines providing added value

  • Features a variety of luxury amenity spaces catering to the leisure, business and fitness needs of the residents providing a backdrop for community interaction

  • Contemporary finishes and forms relate to the urban context of the project
