Vernon St. Apartments Oakland, Ca.
The Vernon Street Apartments project transformed the facade and entry of a non-descript 1960’s apartment building into a building with a unique character. The client had a desire to reflect the Art Deco style that was prominent in the area. We developed a grand entrance element with its glass and steel awning, pilasters and fluted spandrel panel. We further softened the plane of the façade with rhythmic pilasters along the skyline and the rounding of the sharp edges.
