One of the project high lights is the wall panels in the main entry and corridor. These are metal clad wood panels installed in a shingle like fashion with accent lighting through out finished to emulate a "Weathered Feel". SMI partnered with Faux Masters of Yorba Linda, CA and Carrier Johnson to create this unusual and artistic finish that echo's the historic feel of Downtown Santa Ana.
