The site of the project was the old campus of Ambassador College, which had moved to Texas.

Pasadena's strong historic preservation movement dictated that Craftsman style be integral to teh design.

The developers and the design team salvaged old buildings and developed a master plan for 70 luxury condos.

This project is part of the first 10 condos completed.

Homeowners can choose their own finishes, appliances and cabinets.

The site plan.

Interiors strike a balance of modern that doffs a cap to tradition.

New architecture fits both stylistically and proportionately.

The jury hailed the project's "ingenious disguise."

Historic presersvation, the 2008 downturn, and the complex approval process made it difficult to build. The design for period facades, which mimic the historic mansions of Pasadena, passed muster.
