Santa Monica Professional Building

This Spanish Colonial Revival building, with Moorish details and baroque ornamentation that draws the eye upwards, has an unusual Y-shaped plan to accommodate sunlight and ocean breezes.

Plans are underway to convert the seven-story structure, which features a penthouse on the top floor, from office and retail space to a hotel.

Garfield Building

This twelve-story structure gracefully combines Art Deco geometry and the floral swirl of the Art Nouveau style.
