SoCal has a vibe like none other. Cameo’s hospitality-focused community was created in collaboration with Toll Brothers Apartment Living. Taking our design partnership to a new location in Orange County, Toll tasked our team with fusing its trusted brand with a consummate Southern California living experience.

Centered on the desires and motivations of this urban community, our research-driven and collaborative approach led the direction of Cameo’s interior design, programming public amenities, corridors, furniture, and art selections, and finish and aesthetic direction for the apartment units. Striking a balance between the needs of working professionals with an opportunity for a “modern escape,” a central theme is the availability of co-working spaces, ranging from private to communal. Outside of work, amenities offered focus on health and wellbeing, including a two-story fitness center, spin and yoga studios, outside fitness lawn, pool, a juice bar, and refreshment area, a gear garage, a quiet lounge, and a pet spa for furry family members.

Residents can unwind and gather for games and a fireside hang out at the sky lounge. The roof deck and courtyards present a rejuvenating retreat, with options for larger group social gatherings mixed with areas that allow for smaller, more private settings. The landscape’s purposeful design and furniture selection support the dichotomy between the intimate zones within the surrounding social atmosphere. A connection between the indoors and outdoors is maintained throughout Cameo, taking full advantage of Southern California’s sunshine and beautiful weather.

Now let’s talk materials and palette. A marriage of natural, soft, and organic materials with textures and elements denoting a modern, clean aesthetic set the scene. Warm wood in honey and walnut tones permeate the space, complemented by bright walls and pops of color through the curated art and furniture selection. Large format concrete-inspired porcelain tile flooring spans throughout with custom-colored terrazzo floor tile accents at featured common areas. The corridor design presents an amalgamation of the design concepts: light, bright, clean walls, custom colored carpet with organic texture and color added into the details; black accent at base and door frames, and unit entry doors that are accented with a warm, walnut plaque and bright snippets of color.

At Cameo, you’ll find a vibrant living experience and a modern escape while soaking up the California sun.
