This mustache-inspired water feature will soon be the focal point of a new apartment complex in Hollywood. We created a tall sculpture to take full use of the height of the complex. The surface is designed with a fragmented mosaic tile that will glimmer nicely in the sun to create dynamic views.

Tamarind Apartments

Hollywood, CA

This mustache-inspired water feature will soon be the focal point of a new apartment complex in Hollywood. We created a tall sculpture to take full use of the height of the complex. The surface is designed with a fragmented mosaic tile that will glimmer nicely in the sun to create dynamic views. The water starts at the top and as it migrates down, it hugs the sides of the sculpture. The water gradually makes its way to the catch basin at the bottom, which is equipped with water bubblers inside a raised basin allowing water to gently spill over. We created a seating area around the fountain to invite residents to enjoy the relaxing sounds and sights of the water feature.

1. Non-themed active water display. This concept strives to attract and captivate the observer with the dynamics and subtleties of the water as it transits the display.

2. Active design that utilizes two tiers to display and transit water. The upper tier quietly supplies water to the two opposing slides. As the water flows down the slides it is forces to cascade into, through and around medium bore holes that are equally spaced and are positioned down the center line of each side of the slide. The sliding water is also interacted with a single laminar stream that emanates from the bottom tier basin.

3. The upper tier supply basin is made of charcoal grey honed granite. Water is carefully and tranquilly fed to this basin at the bottom as to ensure that is surface is static in appearance.

4. The slides are made of charcoal grey polished granite. The slide depth will be thick to allow for the medium bore holes to be cored to within limitations of the granite and allowing for individual white light fixtures to be placed within. A medium cascade flow condition shall be maintained to allow the water
direction to be affected by opposing inner side of the holes.

5. The lower tier basin will have a seat-wall all the way around the perimeter. The lower basin will contain two concealed laminar nozzles that will project arching laminar streams up and on to the flow on the granite slides. The laminar streams will be sequencing to allow for animated leaping and fixed floweffects
to occur. The laminar streams are to be individually lit with white light sources that are mounted in line at their origin points.

1. Nautical theme. This concept is a mélange of nautical images which are paradoxes; as with the water being within the ship and the ship carrying the lighthouse, and the lighthouse being melded with the mariner.

1. Nautical theme. This concept is a mélange of nautical images which are paradoxes; as with the water being within the ship and the ship carrying the lighthouse, and the lighthouse being melded with the mariner.

2. The lighthouse is clad in glass and painted sheet metal. The lighthouse is a functioning timepiece that can actuate on the hour, half-hour or quarter-hour. The head of the lighthouse is a two-sided clock that gives time and allows the viewer to anticipate the movement of the mechanical arms. This attribute is
significant since it will control the pedestrian traffic flow to and from the surrounding space with asinusoidal rhythm; that coincides with tidal ebbs and flows.

3. Two vertical and sloped water walls are located on the lighthouse opposite and at the same level to the mechanical arms. The water walls, on the sides of the tower, are made of glass that is illuminated from behind and below. Water flow, down the wall can be fixed flow or variable flow.

4. The mechanical arms are painted metal and remain in a fixed horizontal position during non-time indication periods. Water flows continuously to the arms at shoulder position and fills the hand buckets and in turn overflows to the basin below. When the arms actuate, they swing quickly from horizontal downward and while doing so, release a stream of water from the hand buckets. This produces a streak of water that describes a quarter-arch from the horizontal position down to the vertical position and back to horizontal thus giving the impression that the mariner is using semaphore to communicate the event.

5. The eye shaped basin gives the impression of a ship with a high bow and stern. The lighthouse is placed in the center and is surrounded by a tight circle of vertical display jets. Two equal length lines of vertical jets leave the circle tangentially and are angled to cross longitudinal centerline of the basin at the
midpoint between the lighthouse and the bow/stern.

1. A serpentine themed display. This active concept mimics the movement of a water snake as it wreaths through water.

2. The upper tier basin is made up of a series of segmented buoyant panels that are individually connected to flexible pivot points located underneath each panel. The panels are mounted 6 millimeters below water level and will see-saw at right angles to the centerline of the basin, controlled by submerged water jets thrusting to the center point on each underside panel half.

1. A serpentine themed display. This active concept mimics the movement of a water snake as it wreaths through water.

2. The upper tier basin is made up of a series of segmented buoyant panels that are individually connected to flexible pivot points located underneath each panel. The panels are mounted 6 millimeters below water level and will see-saw at right angles to the centerline of the basin, controlled by submerged water jets thrusting to the center point on each underside panel half. The water jets will be flow controlled to allow variable patterns to be projected along the entire length of panels. The most significant pattern will be giving the impression of a snake slithering through water.

3. The upper tier basin will over flow along it perimeter down to bottom tier basin. A surge overflow pattern will be prevalent along the length of the upper tier wall as a result of the submerged variable flow nozzles and the see-saw wave patterns created by the moving panels.

4. The panels will be made of translucent cast resin panels that will be tinted with variations of the base colour. As a result, the panels will naturally buoyant and transmit submerged light. The panels will be weighted, balanced and individually tested to ensure that they will dynamically perform to specification.

5. Both upper and lower basins will be lighted by submerged white lighting.

6. The lower tier basin will have a seat-wall all the way around the perimeter. The lower basin will contain ten concealed laminar nozzles that will project arching laminar streams up and over the upper tier basin back down into the opposite side of the lower basin. The laminar streams will be sequencing to allow for animated leaping effects to occur in relation to panel movements. The laminar streams are individually lit with white light sources that are mounted in line and behind the origin points.
