Residential | 127 Madison, Pasadena, CA

Mixed Use Building in the Playhouse District of Pasadena. The Building is designed in an innovative architectural style combining elements of Craftsman Architecture in a highly contemporary interpretation.
A beautiful courtyard at the heart of the complex adorned by an Acacia tree, is surrounded by the glazed volumes of the commercial components on the ground floor, and the apartments above. The upper floors are setback from the street to allow for open air recreation spaces shared by the occupants on multiple levels, and to open up the building to the Mountain and City views. A passage to the courtyard from the street enlivens the pedestrian experience. A dramatic Bridge joins the two wings of the apartments on the fourth floor, with integrated apartments with unsurpassed views. The Bridge forms an elevated Loggia over the Passage to the Courtyard and an opportunity for yet another shared public space protected from the elements.
