SLEEK, EXTERIOR CLADDING MATERIAL PROVIDES RENTAL UNIT WITH A LUXURY FEELING THAT LASTS
LOCATED IN SAN DIEGO’S LITTLE ITALY DISTRICT, ARIEL LUXURY RENTALS ARE CONVENIENTLY SITUATED JUST STEPS FROM THE HARBOR AND DOWNTOWN. THE BAY AREA’S HIGH PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC AND DEMAND FOR CHIC STYLE CREATED A UNIQUE DESIGN CHALLENGE FOR AVRP STUDIOS.
With the new multi-family high-rise structure completed in 2013, Ariel Luxury Rentals has much to offer for city dwellers. Architectural firm AVRP Studios designed the 25-story building with custom amenities such as a barbeque deck, fitness center, rooftop pool and underground parking for tenants to enjoy at any time of year. All 224 units include high-end amenities, floor to ceiling windows, balconies and a beautiful open floor plan. The building also offers 18,000 square feet of retail opportunity on the ground floor and five levels of resident and visitor parking. And to provide a long-lasting exterior facade that looks great, AVRP Studios chose to use Trespa® Meteon®.
MAXIMUM DURABILITY FOR EVERY LOCATION
The aesthetic appeal of Trespa® Meteon® was not the only reason why Trespa® panels were chosen as a cladding material for Ariel Luxury Rentals. Building maintenance is always a key factor to consider in new construction. How well will the materials chosen withstand the test of time and exposure to the natural elements? Will the building’s exterior be easy to clean?
Located in a high traffic area on the San Diego Bay, the building needed to be able to stand up to everyday wear and tear – Trespa® Meteon® offered just that. Low maintenance and high-impact resistance are its inherent product qualities, making it an excellent choice for use in a center city space exposed to high amounts of pedestrian traffic and changing climate. The closed surface of Trespa® Meteon® panels practically withstand dirt accumulation and the salt air coming off the bay, keeping the product smooth, and easy to clean.
PURE LUXURY INSIDE AND OUT
Developing a luxurious rental unit for San Diego’s fashion-forward dwellers with a taste for posh design required an exterior that was every bit as lavish as the interior. In order to give the units lasting distinction, the firm desired an exterior cladding material with a clean, modern aesthetic that, in addition to its high durability and ease of cleaning was able to set the building apart from the glass and steel surrounding structures.
By installing durable and beautiful Trespa® Meteon® high-quality panels, AVRP Studios was able to create a multi-family unit with a luxurious aesthetic that will appeal to design savvy, San Diego renters. Featuring two different colors of Trespa® Meteon®,
English Red and Terra Cotta, the building offers a neat and unique look distinguishing the building amongst the prevailing aesthetic of surrounding, rather
monotonous architecture. Thanks to AVRP Studio's decision to choose Trespa®, residents of Ariel Suites can expect the same exterior beauty and contemporary
design they appreciated at the grand opening for years to come.
“ We wanted to use the Trespa® Meteon® panels on the Ariel Suites
project because of the product‘s high-end quality. The aesthetic is so clean and the panels are extremely durable. Of course, the vast choice of colors Trespa offers is very appealing and I like that the
panels are low-maintenance. Choosing a low-maintenance exterior
cladding product for an area with heavy exposure to human traffic was especially critical.”
