Casa Luna is a multifamily project entailing a historically faithful renovation of a single family craftsman home, originally built in 1904, and construction of a new 12-unit multifamily apartment building that echoes themes of Spanish Colonial Revival architecture popular in San Diego in the early twentieth century.
To preserve the historic character of the neighborhood, the new structure draws design inspiration from Irving Gill, an architect active in San Diego during the early decades of the twentieth century and a pioneer in the modern movement who became known for incorporating elements of Spanish Colonial Revival in his modern designs. The juxtaposition of the two historic styles creates a dynamic interplay of design elements and color palettes that reflects the diversity of the present day Sherman Heights neighborhood.
The new building includes efficient one bedroom and studio layouts, making it ideal workforce housing and helps to close the gap in the local housing market often referred to as the “missing middle”. Located close to public transit options and within walking distance of some fantastic coffee shops, bars, and restaurants, this project promises to bring future residents a vibrant and dynamic lifestyle in one of San Diego’s most promising up-and-coming neighborhoods.
