“Reminds me of California architecture in the 1940’s….very classy looking.” - Historic Landmark Commissioner comment
Presently on our boards, this multi-family residential project is being reviewed by the City of Santa Barbara under their AUD (Average Unit-Size Density) program. It includes renovation of the existing 'minimal traditional' 1950s apartment building facing Victoria Street. The project also includes new construction of two 2-bedroom apartments on the second story with private outdoor space and parking at grade. This project celebrates simple architectural forms and responds to the continued demand for sustainable, affordable housing in a walk-able community. Minimal steel-framed corner windows reference the original postwar building while providing natural light to the interiors from various directions. Landscaped courtyard spaces include pedestrian circulation separate from onsite car access. Residents will enjoy a strong integration of indoor/ outdoor living on a fairly quiet street in downtown Santa Barbara.
