About The Project

Trestle Glen is a redeveloped obsolete RV trailer park adjacent to the Colma BART Station, an affordable rental community of 119 apartments. The new five-story building incorporates Spanish Mediterranean design elements, attractively landscaped outdoor courtyard areas, and a community room. A child-care facility with outdoor play space is included on the ground floor. Trestle Glen is located less than one mile from schools, parks, a community center, a variety of retail and restaurant options, and the Colma BART station.

Argus developed the Trestle Glen brand identity to reflect its surroundings. Inspired by the the Spanish Mediterranean architecture and history of the area, the identity picks up on colorful tile work and iron details familiar to the Mediterranean style. The identity was applied to a variety of areas in many different ways. The entry sign was built to replicate tile and iron materials and have a special, dimensional quality. Interior wayfinding signage for Trestle Glen ties together with the exterior signage through use of color and texture. Our work included programming and the developed of an extensive wayfinding signage program which includes the building identity, as well as, ADA compliant signs.
