The Arches Apartments banner

The Arches apartment building in Mission Bay is unique in more ways than one. Accumen Shapes are proud to have supplied the decorative moulding details for this project.

The aesthetic expression of the façade amongst its neighbours is also pleasantly unique: centering coastal cues, the building captures a sculptural quality and an appreciation of traditionally inspired forms.

The dazzling white exterior complements the seaside environment, and the curved archways and custom-made moulding details portray a calming yet sophisticated energy.
