About This Project

8701 Santa Monica Blvd.

The structure is a building of Spanish Gothic Revival style architecture. The architecture of this commercial building is characterized by a large square and hipped roof tower at the southeast corner. The square corner tower has a molded cornice. A small, square turret projects from the western tower façade at the peak in the gabled roof. The hipped and gabled roofs are red clay tile with decorative wrought iron brackets supporting the rain gutters. The façade of the reinforced concrete building, covered in stucco, resembles roughly textured stone blocks “cut” in varying sizes and shapes. (Photo Credit: Tony Coelho)
