2602 Broadway | Kevin Daly Architects | Santa Monica, California

This 33-unit complex takes design cues from the ubiquitous 1960s-era dingbat apartments that dot the beachside city to help it blend in to the existing built environment. Architect Kevin Daly wanted residents to feel a sense of community and openness without sacrificing privacy, so he lined a series of inner walkways with vertical slats of wood that act as permeable screens, allowing just enough light, movement and sound to infiltrate the courtyard. On the rear of the property is a Boys and Girls Club which provides after-school activities for local children.
