Project: Vista del Rey
Location: Tacoma, Washington
Client: Dobler Management Company, Inc.
Scope: Exterior Renovation
Completed: 2012

The client required minor upgrades to an existing Art Deco style high rise apartment building to increase street presence and resident amenities. Casey + DeChant designed a matching monumental entrance canopy to draw attention to the building's entry, as well as to provide a comfortable waiting area for guests outside the secured building.  Existing walkways to the street and adjacent resident parking from the entry were replaced to align with the new entry canopy.

Interior remodels consisted of dividing the existing laundry room into two separate rooms to create an updated laundry room and a community exercise room.  Frosted interior windows in the new, non-structural wall separating the two spaces provide diffuse natural lighting to the new laundry room.
