Architecture reveals its beauty through airy space, but it reveals its intelligence through density.We approach urban environments with both of these notions in mind. Looking for the beautiful solution in these rigid and often inhuman landscapes, and finding ways to take finite spaces and maximize usability, occupancy and access elegantly.

Additional Mixed Use Projects
Stella is a modern residential community and an expression of the future of multi-family housing: a pedestrian-friendly, transit-oriented, eco-centric, mixed-use development intended for rental, but designed to condominium standards for future sale.
Situated at the intersection of Maxella Avenue, Lincoln Boulevard and the Marina Freeway, and surrounded by essential services and entertainment opportunities, Stella facilitates a true urban lifestyle for 244 households, including 24 very-low-income families. Two nested, L-shaped buildings, oriented for maximum access to light and views, are set atop a concrete podium housing 9,000 square feet of ground floor retail space and 578 parking stalls. These buildings embrace an expansive common outdoor amenity deck featuring an Olympic-size swimming pool, gym, resident lounges, demonstration kitchens, yoga and spa rooms, a large sand beach, as well as exterior alcoves for private barbecues and get-togethers.
Drawing on the creative traditions of Venice Beach and environs, while addressing the challenging regulatory environment of Los Angeles, Stella creates a new paradigm for modern living at the edge of the Pacific.
