This supergraphic, located TCA Architects Oakland office takes a modern approach mainly inspired by vintage French café art and utilizes TCA Architect’s brand colors. There are quotes and graphics displayed in different orientations leading the eye around the composition. The concept was a double entendre of fueling your brain literally and figuratively while relaxing and enjoying the company of co-workers at lunchtime.
A vibrant energetic community for the downtown LA dweller.

AVA Little Tokyo includes two buildings that bring a total of 280 new luxury apartment units into the vibrant Little Tokyo district of downtown Los Angeles. Located at Los Angeles and 2nd Street, this new six-story mixed-use project combines five levels type-3 construction over ground level and two-level subterranean garage. Designed in tandem, the AVA Little Tokyo buildings are to be perceived and operated as a single mixed-use community. Similar exterior façade materials provide a visual harmony, while Parcel A contains sufficient amenities to portray an individual identity; Parcel B contains the ground floor leasing and fitness spaces. Other amenities include two outdoor courtyards with a pool, spas, and lounge spaces. On the ground level, residents have access to storage, DIY rental spaces, and bike repair services. To activate the promenade, eight 2-story townhome apartments are located on the street facing the adjacent residences. Amenities featured in each building are driven by the best location within the project. The large corner public plaza with 13,500 square feet of retail and restaurant spaces activates the street and surrounding community. A 1,500 square foot rooftop deck combines seating, fireplaces, and a social bar with dramatic city skyline views.
