This master-planned community, which is characterized by oak canyons, native-inspired landscape, and traditional ranch-style land uses, with long-distance ocean views and dramatic inland mountain peaks, features two- and three-story, high-density, attached multifamily units arranged around one side of a central town green. The units provide extensive, functional outdoor spaces, including expansive roof-decks for exploiting a mild climate, an outdoor lifestyle, and impressive views. Styles are inspired by modern ranch life, with farmhouse architectural characteristics that exhibit traditional flair and are articulated by contemporary details and textural elements.

From the Judges
Great third floor space; interesting character; well done.
