Project Highlights

Chameleon Design Featured Project: The Plaza at Sierra, Fontana

The Plaza at Sierra is the 4th of a series that the city of Fontana asked our builder to create for their affordable senior housing needs.  The property has two 3-story buildings, a pool,  putting green, pool room, two media lounges and several other great spaces for the seniors to hang out and feel at home.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Marblehead Information Center, San Clemente

For this project, Chameleon Design was asked to work with an unbranded developer to help sell the last stretch of undeveloped coastline designated for high-end custom homes.   The catch was that the only structures in place were two trailers!  Not to mention, neither had a view, and that was a main selling point.

We tackled this project successfully by simply bringing the outdoors in.  There were two distinct buildings, the first being the Sales Office.  In this space we showcased a uniquely expansive topographic map with drawers that house small scale maps, giving the buyer a more detailed look of their prospective lot.   Above the map was a dramatic aerial photograph on a tackable surface, with space for photographs of work in progress.  We went with a color palette of sky and sand, with accessories of stone and a waterfall impact logo overlayed on the window.

 The stone façade seamlessly linked interior and exterior spaces, and made it impossible to believe the bones of the sales office were a prefabricated mobile home.

Outdoor living rooms and modern arbors, expanded the sense of spaciousness.  Everything was designed to launch a new aesthetic away from the Mediterranean and toward the modern, and to capture the rugged California coast with a sense of elegance and modernity.

The second building, the Meeting Center, provided resources for both architects, clients, and builders alike to work or show clients a video of the development.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Belvedere Plan B1- Central Park West, Irvine

With this project, Studio Chameleon had the exciting challenge of making the interior of this 2nd story flat surrounded by four levels of flats, feel light, bright and desirable.

Our solution was to use a lot of white! White paint, white flooring and a stacked stone wall that was painted glossy white, along with pops of turquoise and red was just what the cave-like space needed to open up and feel fresh.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: City Center Seniors Housing, Ontario

City Center is a “Low Income Affordable” Senior Apartment Building with a Clubhouse, Leasing Offices, Theater, Multi-Purpose Room and common areas.   The exterior and interiors were designed with a craftsman-style in mind, and the exterior brick detail was brought inside to the Main Lobby. We chose a color scheme of caramel, greens and browns to reinforce that overall craftsman feel. The seniors who now call this home love how warm and comfortable it feels.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: The Welcome House- Colony Park, Anaheim

The Sales Trailer for Colony Park in Anaheim was designed to feel like someone’s living room. With all the technological advances that are showcased in this trailer, Chameleon Design felt that it should also feel like the name- “The Welcome House.” The idea was for potential home buyers to come inside seeking more information, but do it while putting their feet up and watching the master plan amenities on the flat screen, or sit on a bar stool and interact with a computer.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Belvedere Plan F1-B- Central Park West, Irvine

This space was designed for a move down couple from Newport Beach that is trading in the maintenance of having a single family home for a condo lifestyle. One great perk is the spectacular club facility right across the street within Central Park West.

The condo features elegant finishes including honed creamy stone flooring, granite slab counter tops and accent tables, silk rugs and modern decorative light fixtures. We worked with a sophisticated color palette of chamois, creamy whites, natural silks with vibrant yellow accents, and a hint of navy blue. And the transitional furnishings are accented with original art, natural elements like oversized coral pieces, large crystal mineral pieces and petrified wood sculptures.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Montecito Village, Ramona

Montecito Village is an affordable family community comprised of 1, 2, 3 and 4-bedroom apartments. The property serves low to very low-income households.  Chameleon Design was involved in the renovation which included: new roofs, paint, energy efficient windows and patio doors, fencing, HVAC systems, signage, and improvements to drainage, landscaping, paving and site accessibility.  Kitchens and bathrooms also received new cabinets, countertops, appliances, plumbing fixtures, flooring and energy efficient lighting. Additionally, a new community room, computer learning center, picnic area and leasing office were added to enhance the lives of the residents.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Waterman Junction, Barstow

For this project, Chameleon Design transformed the Harvey House restaurant in the middle of Barstow into an information center launching a new 80,000 home development. Dating back to 1885, the building used to be an old railroad depot. The building’s historical designation lead to considerable construction constraints. We made it work for us by drawing on original features such as the Doric columns, box beam ceilings and hammered copper chandeliers to infuse elements of the past with fresh modern styling.

 Original columns at entry.

 

 Bold patterns on upholstered chairs recall the feel of a passenger train car and standing displays resolve the problem of no wall space.
 On the solitary usable wall, one finds an enormous map suspended with steel and custom wood framing.

 

 Welcoming windows, lively carpet tiles, and a rich gem-like palette all signal a Barstow with vitality, history and community where new residents and homeowners can imagine beginning a new.

Chameleon Design Featured Project: Granville at Central Park West, Irvine

For this project we used our Earthy, Urban Natural scheme and added some Industrial Elements mixed with reclaimed wood pieces to inspire an Eco-Friendly buyer.  The wood flooring starts at the entry and into the downstairs office, then continues on the second floor living spaces and then again is repeated on the third floor landing/day trader space to lead you up.

The dining table had to have a “wow” factor, since you walk right into the side of it on the second floor, so we chose a slab of wood with a live edge and added the industrial metal stools for seating.  The stools worked well because they didn’t take up too much space.
