The playful Jeanette301 apartment complex in Santa Ana, California
Edited By Editorial Staff -

The five-story Jeanette301 apartment complex houses 182 units. The architects Lorcan O’Herlihy Architects (LOHA) (Design Architects) William Hezmalhalch Architects [WHA] (Executive Architects) strategically situated the structure on its 2.1 acres site in Santa Ana, California.

A multitude of amenities

The massing is ruggedly carved to promote the connection of circulation patterns, interconnected courtyards and framed glimpses of exterior and interior spaces. Greenery from the courtyards extend to the streetscape providing a stark contrast to the dense complex. The community of studios and common spaces promote a sense of collaboration amongst the residents and their guests.

Unique character

Playfully placed fenestrations of varying sizes pierce the cement-panel treatment of the exterior facade. Additionally, large extractions of the form conjure a sense of depth with their resultant shade and shadow. The local context of higher education institutions and a medical center is complemented by the unique character of Jeanette301.
