Location: Los Angeles, California
Sandstone is located on a prominent site along the Sepulveda Boulevard corridor that leads to LAX Airport in the Westchester community of Los Angeles. The project, in the heart of the Silicon Beach technology center, offers a modern and exciting alternative to other multi-family housing complexes in the area. Consisting of 176 apartment homes, ranging in size from a 465 square foot studio to a 1080 square foot two bedroom residence, the project is nestled into a landscaped bluff and offers expansive views of Century City to the north and Downtown Los Angeles to the east. Parking for over 200 cars is contained within two and a half levels at the base of the project, with the apartment homes perched above on five levels. A large amenity deck includes a pool, sun deck, dining court, entertainment patio as well as interior amenities that include a kitchen and bar, fitness center, and yoga room. The architectural treatment of the exterior facades recalls the language of technology through the use of strong movement patterns in the windows and metal panel cladding. The Sepulveda Boulevard façade hovers above a grand motor court, defined by a two story volume supported by a diagonal truss, and resembles the circuitry of a computer chip.
