High-rise Condominium

Marina del Rey, California

Overlooking the marina with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, this condominium on the 15th floor of a high-rise building was relatively new, but required attention to resolve awkward spaces, improve the efficiency of the floor plan and install fixtures and furnishings consistent with the quality of the building and its stunning views.

Updated finishes include maple paneling throughout the main living areas, new maple doors and hardware, new plumbing and lighting fixtures. Italian terrazzo tile flooring throughout and glass-tile walls interspersed with ceramic art tiles add interest in the entry foyer and the kitchen.

Problem-solving

Green materials were incorporated for several applications, including countertops and flooring. Reconfiguring the kitchen and breakfast area allowed an unobtrusive home-office area to be added.
