BEYOND THE STATS

  • Comprised of two adjacent properties on a busy commuter street, these affordable single-room occupancy projects, within walking distance of the new Expo Line Station, Santa Monica College, St. John’s Hospital and Santa Monica-UCLA Medical Center, answer the need for workforce and student housing in Santa Monica.
  • Despite the code-required small size of the units, their 19-foot high ceilings, large windows and sleeping mezzanines give each the character of a spacious loft.
  • Although the two projects are distinct, they share common programmatic and architectural elements, and form a streetscape that is both continuous and varied. A twenty-foot setback from Olympic Blvd. provides a generous landscape area as well as a buffer between the units and the busy street.
