Glassy New Malibu Church, Upgrade For Plaza at Sherman Oaks

New, 7 comments

MALIBU: Malibu Presbyterian Church opened a new sanctuary a couple Sundays ago, five and a half years after its old one was destroyed in the Malibu fires of 2007. San Diego-based domusstudio designed the new glass-walled building; it incorporates a steel beam cross that was salvaged from the old building, as well as theater seating, a balcony, and "a cutting edge video wall and sound system." The new church also has "two-hour fire resistant, stone-clad exterior walls, a single-sloped copper roof and non-combustible materials throughout." [Curbed Inbox]

SHERMAN OAKS: The Plaza at Sherman Oaks has a new owner--Raintree Partners picked up the 392-unit apartment complex last month. It happens to sit next to their 39-unit Villa Sofia, so they'll be combining operations and giving Villa Sofia residents access to The Plaza's amenities (which are not insignificant: they include a tennis court, putting green, pool, and a clubhouse with a gym and screening room). Raintree will also be renovating the apartments and adding "granite counters, new appliances, new cabinets, new wood grain plank vinyl flooring, new carpet, new lighting and plumbing packages and new paint."
