Studio One Eleven completes human-scaled, neighborhood plan

Studio One Eleven has completed the third and final phase of its unique, two-block, intimately scaled development, Fourth + Linden. Studio One Eleven was both designer and co-developer of the masterplan, ensuring that it achieves peak walkability and urban vitality while expanding the Long Beach East Village Arts District. “In our experience, economic health evolves on a human scale. So, rather than impose a monolithic form on these two facing blocks, we allowed for organic growth. This means architectural variety, smaller-scale buildings – including reused older structures – and eye-level amenities that form gathering spots, such as a parklet, street furniture and curb extensions. The blocks are further broken-up by paseos and courtyards” said Studio One Eleven Senior Principal Michael Bohn, AIA.

Solarban 90 Solar Control Low-E Glass Solarban 90 glass combines industry-leading solar control performance with a true neutral-reflective clear-glass aesthetic. United with clear glass in a standard 1-inch IGU, Solarban 90 glass has a solar heat gain coefficient of 0.23, visible light transmittance of 51 percent and an LSG ratio of 2.22. Solarban 90 glass facilitates the use of smaller HVAC systems to reduce initial capital expenditures and long-term cooling costs. It also enables architects to design buildings with larger expanses of glass to promote daylighting, diminish the need for artificial lighting and connect building occupants to the outdoors.
