Method to the madness?
Prior painted all white to provide a back-drop to the landscape, the current painting scheme and efforts to change the units seems ackward and ill-thought out. The view here particularly raises the question as the vertical split and horizontal split visible on the block below makes a discordant feel to the prior integrated design. (consistent emphasis on the "new") This block also does not have the applied trim placed on the units, that again kitschify's the prior modern simple, utilitarian scheme. (Plants in this view had been manicured by maintenance a.k.a. low-maintenance haircut that is typically evident on parkmerced property)
