Commercial and Office Buildings

Commercial projects differ from residential projects in many aspects; the design and the spaces to dreamt up by the architect require more specialized skills and sometimes creative solutions from the structural engineers.


This building is an architectural marvel of steel, glass, concrete and masonry in the center of Santa Monica. The building has a total of four floors over a two story concrete subterranean garage with two story interior floors with partial mezzanines. The City approval presented a major challenge for the design team as Santa Monica has very strict regulations.
