    The Essex at Lake Merritt
    Oakland, California 200,000 s.f.

    The Essex luxury high-rise apartments are prominently sited on Oakland's Lake Merritt. The high-rise tower portion features a great curving white metal and glass wall, standing as a metaphorical sail on the lake. The low-rise section responds contextually to the scale of the adjacent historic Lake Merritt Hotel, and rests on a parking podium atop a lap pool, public plaza and private gardens overlooking the lake.

    Project executed while an Associate at Ai Architects.
