Regency Palms Long Beach


Best 55+ Repositioned or Repurposed Project

NOMINATED BY: KTGY Architecture + Planning

PROJECT STATEMENT: Architects renovated and repositioned the footprint of this historic, 1929 Art Deco office, highlighting the impeccable craftsmanship. The historic detailing was restored to its original splendor. New double-pane windows match the originals in shape and color, enhance the façade, allow fresh air and light in, block sound and increase energy efficiency.   

Layouts were redesigned, adding a wall to incorporate kitchenettes in the assisted living units. An activity room, fitness room and salon were designed into the space once used as a basement. A roof terrace with trellis structures for shade, trees and seating areas provides safe outdoor space for residents.
