The definition that comes from this project can create a good connection between the community living with the restaurants and shopping area near the University. The lofts are built on the former site of a mobile home park with the efficient use of outdoor and indoor space from the energy efficient design.

The main planning for this awesome project is about a direct and simple study, separating the pedestrian and cars while creating the private and public courtyards and paths. The architect also works with the local zoning requirements to make a great living place based on the local rules.

The unit of the lofts is designed with a light and a good space based on the flexible plan. There are a steel stair and custom cabinetry that show the clean lines. The windows provide the best view from the courtyard and sky. The private balconies also provide a great view of the Catalina Mountains

The central walkway has a cowling sculpture which is perfectly unabashed and also round. The cowling sculpture looks contrast with the architecture angles. The purpose is creating an axis which is modern to the project.
