Park East Apartments is a premier apartment community in Hillcrest, one of San Diego’s most coveted urban locations. McCulley Design Lab had the pleasure of consulting on the interior design and architectural reimaging for the property, which had “lost its way” over the years. Paying respect to Park East Apartments’ original architecture designed by the renowned architect William Kreisel, McCulley Design Lab worked to retain and revive the spirit of Kreisel’s original design.
Scope of work included new look and feel for the lobbies, public corridors, exterior facade, and amenity spaces such as the community room, outdoor living spaces and gym. Design solutions included the implementation of art, furniture, paint, and other finishes. With beautiful accent pieces and eye-catching interior decor, McCulley Design Lab created a better overall flow that enhanced resident experience and functionality of the Park East Apartment building. The “green wall” in the community room brings in an element of biophilia, while breeze-block wall coverings in the elevator lobby offer a unique sense of discovery. These design elements make a cohesive and engaging space, creating an inviting experience for both visitors and residents. This project is a great display of McCulley Design Lab’s ability to think outside the box and completely transform a space into a more enjoyable and fun place to live.
