Environmental Architecture?

Many homes and buildings have a unique character, but are they really alive? We can affirm that the walls are.  Walk down Forest Ave in Laguna Beach and notice succulents draping off of an art gallery’s exterior walls. This is just one example of the multitude of ‘Living Walls’ that have sprouted throughout Orange County. The architectural art form is both environmentally friendly and tasteful. It is said that Living Walls can clean outside air of pollutants, dust and offset the carbon footprint of people and fuel emissions. Living Walls can create more biodiversity and also increase real estate value. Cha Ching $$.

Moving and storage have met the 21st Century…

Need to call an Uber to store your antique collectibles? No need to, ClosetBox provides full-service, concierge storage with a free pickup at your door and on-demand return delivery for the cost of a traditional self-storage unit. Say goodbye to stuffing storage into the attic. ClosetBox service has become wildly popular in urban areas and high-populated cities to store belongings in a stress-free way, by taking the ‘self’ out of self-storage. Serving 65 cities across the nation, people have said ClosetBox has brought moving and storage into the 21st century.

Where the items are stored is another public concern. Communities have been arguing that storage containers are aesthetic eyesores. “Towns are even asking that self-storage buildings include fake windows and doors on the exteriors, so buildings blend in with their urban or suburban surroundings.” Communities also complain that storage facilities don’t generate enough sales tax revenue and that self-storage facilities don’t employ as many people as other commercial uses would…first world problems.
