A famous midcentury modern in the heart of downtown San Diego

ipe deck tiles midcentury modern   Project:  The 1958 to Henry Hester apartment building Architect: DGA Architecture & Planning This gorgeous 31 unit midcentury modern building is characterized by light and natural tones with an emphasis on the connection between indoor and outdoor spaces. The project was commissioned in 1958 to Henry Hester, one of San Diego’s premier modernist architects.  DGA Architecture contacted us to figure out the perfect outdoor floor for this midcentury modern renovation.   The parameters where to use a lightweight non intrusive flooring solution that is modular removable and easy to clean.  Since the outdoor patios are complimented by a beautiful teak sidewalls,  our solution was to stay with wood, and use our Ipe interlocking deck tiles over the 2000 sq ft of area.   The results were stunning.  The homeowner still to this day has the same deck tiles and enjoys a sleak yet refined look the patios.
