Complex Love: The Oceanair

This week's Complex Love brings us some mid century coastal cool. The Oceanair Apartments is a little complex tucked down a small street in the Newport Beach/Costa Mesa area. I used to pass it on my way to work everyday and marvel at the gorgeous white facade and awesome lettering. Built in 1962, it's still in immaculate condition and I just love all the mid century modern details... Complex Love is a photographic celebration of Southern California's unique apartment architecture history. Live in or nearby an apartment complex of notable or unusual design? Please submit photos and information to la (at) apartmenttherapy (dot) com.

I got the sense that the majority of tenants were older folk that had lived there since it was built. Unfortunately, my assumption was correct and I got a first hand yelling at from one of them and was quickly shooed away. Oh well... at least I got to sneak some quick pics!
