Soho Square in West Los Angeles offers modern condominium comforts with natural materials and water fittings from GROHE
Hardly any other city fires up the imagination as Los Angeles, the giant metropolis on the West Coast of the USA which is universally associated with sunny weather, individual freedom and a casual mix of diverse lifestyles. This is also reflected in a generously laid out condominium development built in 2009. Soho Square is located in West L.A., not far from the famous coastal town of Santa Monica. Its architecture projects a modern and streamlined style with some industrial touches while at the same time demonstrating environmental responsibility through the use of recyclable materials. The architects’ specifications for the compact residential units included premium-quality water fittings from GROHE.
The facade of Soho Square exudes an open-minded atmosphere which embraces the typical indoor-outdoor lifestyle of Los Angeles. The predominant white building encloses three light-filled courtyards designed with plants and rock arrangements in a minimalist and urbane style. The latter is also very much in evidence in the 94 apartments which offer ample space for creativity, where bright walls and ceilings contrast with dark furniture. The designers from local architectural practice Warren Techentin Architects cooperated with British architect Peter Wilson in selecting features that are organic or of recycled material and in using environmentally compatible technologies.
The sustainable ethos continues on the inside where high-quality faucets and fittings from GROHE use water-saving technologies to offer uncompromised water enjoyment with reduced water consumption in the bathrooms and kitchens. Elegant GROHE Allure faucets adorn the wash basins. Built around GROHE SilkMove® cartridges, these faucets ensure the ultimate in user comfort through silky smooth lever action for accurate control of water temperature and flow. Aside from these functional benefits, the clear lines of GROHE Allure harmonise beautifully with the most diverse bathroom styles. A pleasantly natural shower experience comes courtesy of the GROHE Essence shower fittings and the ergonomically shaped Relexa showerhead. The same attention to detail has been applied in the kitchen, where GROHE Minta faucets bring to bear their perfect blend of well thought-through functionality, innovative technology and clear aesthetics. Their purist lines will appeal to architecture lovers and amateur chefs as well as to anybody who believes that contemporary design should make a contribution to conserving energy and natural resources.
At Soho Square, modern lifestyles and sustainable living are once again combined to perfection in water fittings from GROHE.
