This limited collection of 19 townhomes and garden flats are thoughtfully designed to accentuate the quintessential outdoor lifestyle and casual vibe of Santa Monica.
The award-winning architects at JFAK set out to create something that spoke to the future of Santa Monica, where the relaxed, contemporary Southern California lifestyle is centered around a connection to nature, comfort and community. Epitomizing their philosophy that architecture is a means to enrich the living experience, AIRE is designed specifically for its location, where open, airy interiors, outdoor living spaces and a crisp, contemporary palette create a vibrant new Santa Monica aesthetic.
CREATING A SENSE OF PLACE
What started as a concept evolved into a central theme to create a seamless relationship between indoor and outdoor living. Three residential buildings frame an open-air courtyard meant for gathering, lounging, entertaining or simply enjoying Santa Monica’s temperate climate. The buildings collectively provide the foundation for a sculpturally articulated and materially rich exterior design that blends flawlessly with the surroundings. The buildings feature a geometric exterior enhanced by warm, natural materials, including recycled wood composite and cement panels and plaster. Stainless steel, aluminum and glass guardrails add a contemporary style to create a dynamic presence along 14th Street.
PURPOSEFUL INSPIRED INTERIORS
JFAK’s use of light and space results in interiors and exteriors that draw the outdoors in and blend beautifully with the landscape. Bright, open interiors welcome natural light and coastal air while extending the living experience to the outdoors. Lofty ceilings and glass walls add volume and scale, and open-concept floor plans provide a fresh, clean canvas for the modern lifestyle. Minimalist, neutral interiors are carefully configured and crafted with a curated selection of finishes, fixtures and technological features, allowing owners to customize their living environment.
THE GARDEN FLATS
Nine single-story flats comprise AIRE’s first level featuring 2-bedrooms, 2-baths and expanded outdoor living areas that coordinate fluently with the central communal courtyard. Impeccably designed, light-filled interiors feature rich, subtle details that elevate the living experience, from the thoughtful placement of clerestory windows to the intuitive functionality of the open, chef-caliber kitchen. Each residence is purposefully designed to form a natural extension to the spacious terraces, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

THE OUTDOOR CONNECTION
Designed to capture the relaxed, outdoorsy style of Santa Monica, AIRE’s communal spaces offer an inviting retreat while fostering a strong sense of community. A private, central courtyard, with casual seating areas, contemplative water features and garden, opens to the sky and inspires engagement as well as connectivity between the residential buildings. The vibrant outdoor space was designed with both a communal and an intimate scale so that people could gather if they so please, or enjoy a peaceful escape to one’s self.
ONLY TWO WHEELS NEEDED
Designed for making the most of AIRE’s location in the heart of Santa Monica, two bikes are provided for each residence to encourage integration within the community. Residents can run daily errands or head to one of the numerous farmers’ markets, shopping districts, beaches or nearby restaurants, without the need of a car. A bike rack is located in the subterranean parking garage.
RESIDENTS & GUEST PARKING
The subterranean garage provides residents with safe and secure parking facilities, with two side-by-side parking spaces per residence. The garage also features five guest parking spaces, a rare amenity within the city of Santa Monica.
A warm welcome home, AIRE’s private, gated entrance with keypad access features a modular, living green wall that leads to the courtyard beyond.
