There is a growing demand for luxury apartment complexes in North Hollywood, California. These new complexes offer reasonably priced housing alternative for comfortable living surrounded by the local artistic creative vibe and now recognized in name as NoHo. The Riverton Apartments is a 24 unit apartment complex composed of 1 and 2 bedroom units that were originally built in 1970. The existing Tudor style architecture proved to be dated and a departure from the growing modern styles of architecture of this artistic NoHo district.
Ryans Virtual Design was contracted to revitalize this aging property. The renovation included an updated exterior façade and all interior units; a major challenge! RVD elected to transform the exterior façade with contemporary architecture, colors and contrasting Eco friendly materials.
The computer renderings assist owners visualize the transformation prior to construction. Contractors were able to schedule sub-trade construction and identify any transition challenges. The imagery was also used for the Neighborhood Council and Local Building Dept. Design Review Board approval.
By transforming the building façade, Ryans Virtual Design enhanced the buildings curb appeal and overall appearance of this NoHo structure. The new façade incorporated an energy efficient envelope with a new cool membrane roofing, double pane windows, and solid core doors.
The modernization transcended to the inside with the renovated lobby and access corridors too which complements the new NoHo architectural vibe and eclectic environment.
The contemporary styling was echoed inside where the interior units were fitted with hardwood floors throughout, energy star stainless steel appliances, granite counter-tops. All new cabinetry and completed with a fresh new color palette.
All the units are moderately priced for the newly classified executive luxury complex. These select improvements to the complex assisted to improve the building architecture from the outside to the inside. Amongst a very competitive local rental market it was 100% leased within one week of its listing posting!
These are just a few photos of the renovation stages for you to enjoy from the Computer Generated Renderings to Conceptual Design, thru Construction to Final Construction.
