I was walking by this very 1960's design apartment building in the Westlake neighborhood when I noticed an arrow pointing straight up. At first I wondered if the landlord had scrubbed off graffiti from the stucco surface; but, closer inspection revealed that this was at least partially due to light reflecting from a building across the street. Isn't it interesting the simple and inexpensive mid-century modern design elements used to embellish an otherwise plain rectangular building, like theses angled balconies and roof line?
