Santa Ana, CA
The four-story, 264-unit, luxury apartment community with resort-style flair combines intimate and dynamic spaces that truly deliver the live/work/play environments that residents are demanding.
Lifescapes International designed the main entrance and exterior perimeter of the community, gardens that flow throughout the property, central courtyard, and outdoor seating areas, as well as an elevated recreation deck with resort-style pool, spa, and private cabanas.
The design was infused with youthful energy, creating numerous intimate gathering spaces surrounded by lush, tropical trees to create a destination-like look and feel to the community.
Natural, “implied” walls and canopies create comfortably enclosed gathering spaces for residents. Concrete and pavers of subtle colors, contemporary finishes, and varying sizes were installed to define spaces and encourage circulation patterns, designating social hubs throughout the property.
Further, many “sustainable” landscape features and plants were integrated into the project, offering a variety of sculptural forms, texture and size that are woven together like a tapestry. The dynamic gathering spaces for residents and their guests are designed to evolve with residents’ needs over time, resulting in a vibrant place that exudes a very comfortable, relaxed, and cool community ambiance.
