One Year Later

I recently re-shot a beautiful wine room at Blue Water Cafe a year after I originally photographed it. The ceiling is now a a focal point with the addition of glass panels. Which one do you prefer?

LEED Certified Parking Garage

This Santa Monica parking garage designed by
Moore Ruble Yudell Architects and Planners is the first LEED certified parking struucture in the United States. Solar photovoltaic panels on the roof provides renewable energy and shade for top level parking. The materials used were recycled and finished with low-VOC paints and finishes. Low-e glazing is utilized to decrease heating and cooling loads. A storm-drain water-treatment system helps reduce runoff from directly entering the hydrosphere and greywater is harvested to provide for landscaping on-site.
