The San Vicente office building is located on a busy street at the entrance to a luxury shopping and restaurant district in Brentwood, Los Angeles, and it faces a large open park across the street. Metallic silver paint coats the façade of the two-story structure, reflecting the changing light conditions throughout the day and rendering the stucco underneath almost immaterial. The façade’s color ranges from crisp silver against a foggy sky to the glowing orange of the evening sun. The varying depths of the apertures on the three sides of the building register the varying wall thicknesses, accentuated and given volume by a black and silver palette.
