This vintage retail and office building located south of Wilshire on the busy Beverly Boulevard has been up graded to meet the demands of the retail office market. The choice of material was rooted in Southern California, Terra Cotto, except this product is designed and manufactured in Tuscany Italy. The terra cotto extruded elements form the light scale skin of the building, while implying a contemporary styling with the use of a traditional material. The warmth and texture of the material along with its low maintained is an excellent choice for Southern California. This design allows light and air into the second story offices while the fluted panels are firmly cladding the buildings structure at the base. This artesian company started in 1910 in Tuscany fabricating high quality terra cotto vases and though the years develop a line of precision architectural building elements used throughout Europe by famous architects in signature buildings that stand the test of time as demonstrated across classical Europe.
