As Long Beach architects, we have a special affinity for the buildings in our community—especially the historic ones. Long Beach has such a rich architectural history, dating all the way back to the 1880s. Throughout the City, you’ll see everything from Spanish Colonial Revival buildings and homes, to Art Deco structures, to Craftsman Bungalows, and even a few Victorians. Currently, there are 18 neighborhoods in Long Beach that are designated as historic districts, and more than 100 historic landmarks.

We occasionally work with homeowners for whom money is no object, but for most people, it’s important for them to stick to their remodel budget.

They were looking to update the locker rooms used by their members. Our architecture firm presented them with a design, which included material suggestions for things like flooring. Read more…
