Our History
Business tycoon Michael J. Connell built downtown LA’s first garment and textile manufacturing building in 1911, launching a mini-construction boom that lasted through the 1930′s. The heavy, concrete-frame construction and ornamental facades of the early 20th century industrial era characterized the architecture. All of these buildings sat largely unappreciated for decades. In 1998, a decade-long process to restore and re-adapt them for loft living began. The Eckardt and the Cornell at Santee Village are two

Big Loft Windows with Natural Light Makes Us Happy and Healthy

Big Loft Windows with Natural Light Makes Us Happy and Healthy

Natural light is necessary for all humans to be comfortable, healthy and happy.  Sunlight allows our skin to make Vitamin D naturally.  Real estate without sufficient windows leases for 20% less than properties with adequate windows.  More than half of Downtown loft renters and buyers cite plenty of windows and light as being near the top of the priority list.

Research suggests exposure to daylight from windows creates significant health and performance benefits. This past year, researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology found that employees working in environments with natural light recorded higher levels of energy than those in artificially-lit workplaces. The data reconfirms other studies that have shown that controlled daylight in built environments can reduce eyestrain which may lead to improved productivity.

Exposure to daylight at the right time of day also suppresses our melatonin, leading to more restful sleep in the evening. From treatment of depression to alleviating workplace stress, daylight in particular is a convenient means to positively impact human health.In many cases, daylight actually provides greater benefit than electric light.

Natural light has been touted for its many aesthetic and health benefits by designers and researchers alike. Scientists at the Lighting Research Center (LRC), in Troy, N.Y., for example, have reported that daylit environments increase occupant productivity and comfort, and provide the mental and visual stimulation necessary to regulate human circadian rhythms.

Utilizing natural light can lead to substantial energy savings. Electric lighting in buildings consumes more than 15 percent of all electricity generated in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

Along with happier workers, substantial financial and human-performance benefits have been associated with increased daylight. In 2003’s “The Benefits of Daylight Through Windows,” LRC researchers discussed anecdotal evidence that commercial real estate with no windows leases for about 20 percent less—or $2 to $4 per square foot less—than spaces with windows.

In the 1984 Science article “View through a Window may Influence Recovery from Surgery,” Roger Ulrich, now a professor of architecture as well as a co-founding director of the Center for Health Systems and Design at Texas A&M University, reported that surgery patients in rooms that had windows facing trees recovered 8.5 percent faster and took fewer analgesics than did those patients whose view was a brick wall. Subsequent research by others has substantiated the results for patients who stayed in general hospital rooms.

In a 1999 study­ “Daylighting in Schools: An Investigation into the Relationship between Daylighting and Human Performance,” commissioned by the Pacific Gas and Electric Company, HMG found a high correlation between schools that reported improvements in student test scores—upwards of 10 percent—and those that reported increased daylight in the classroom.

The biological processes that regulate our sleep–wake cycle make up our circadian system. Primarily through the use of the neurohormone melatonin, our circadian system regulates our patterns of alertness and sleepiness. Without exposure to normal 24-hour light–dark cycles, a person’s sleep–wake cycle can stray by as much as two hours per day.

Compared to workers in offices without windows, those with windows in the workplace received 173 percent more white light exposure during work hours and slept an average of 46 minutes more per night. Workers without windows reported lower scores than their counterparts on quality of life measures related to physical problems and vitality. They also had poorer outcomes in measures of overall sleep quality, sleep efficiency, sleep disturbances and daytime dysfunction.

Dangers of Unhealthy, Unhygienic Wall-to-wall Carpeting

Dangers of Unhealthy, Unhygienic Wall-to-wall Carpeting

Dangers of Unhealthy Carpet
Dangers of Unhealthy Carpet

Did you know that carpeting is the #1 cause of indoor air pollution in suburban homes? Carpet has the largest surface area of anything in the home.  Taking up a huge amount of space, the materials used in the carpet, padding and installation make for a huge, ominous threat to the health of the inhabitants.

Like many other household products and furnishings, new carpet can be a source of chemical emissions. Carpet emits volatile organic compounds, as do products that accompany carpet installation such as adhesives and padding. Some people report symptoms such as eye, nose and throat irritation; headaches; skin irritations; shortness of breath or cough; and fatigue, which they may associate with new carpet installation. Carpet can also act as a “sink” for chemical and biological pollutants including pesticides, dust mites, and fungi.

Dirty Carpet

Carpets may trap pollutants like dust mites, pet dander, cockroach allergens , particle pollution, lead, mold spores, pesticides, dirt and dust. Toxic gases in the air can adhere to small particles that settle into carpets. These pollutants may become airborne when disturbed by renovations, vacuuming or even daily activities like walking across the carpet. In the home, children are more likely to be exposed to pollution in carpets. They spend time playing on the floor and place their hands in their mouths. If a large area is covered in carpet, it may be very difficult to remove indoor air pollutants and allergens.

Chemicals used in some new carpets, carpet pads and the adhesives used to install them can harm your health. Some of these chemicals and glues are made with volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which emit odors and pollutants. New carpet installation also has been associated with wheezing and coughing in babies in their first year of life.

Educated urbanites know that, in order to attain a truly healthy home, wall-to-wall carpeting should be avoided. There are wonderful alternatives to wall-to-wall carpeting.  Natural fiber area rugs provide soft comfort and fashion when strategically added atop a wood, cork, linoleum, tile, or the mainstay of live-work lofts, the almighty polished concrete floor.  Downtown loft dwellers prefer clean, modern flooring that is durable, allows for unfettered movement and unlimited possibilities.  Request information on downtown homes with no carpet.
