On the banks of Soquel Creek below the Santa Cruz Mountains, this renovation to a six unit apartment building uses its materiality to connect to its wooded surroundings. The wood patterns expressed in the rain screen exterior reinforce the linear horizontal orientation of the panels, while organic patterns cut into the metal panels echo the dappled light passing through the nearby trees.
