HERE ARE SOME THINGS WE DID


The Society Ruby San Diego with Vida Design

We're thrilled to have been part of this project in sunny San Diego. Big thanks to Vida Design and Holland Residential! This is a new construction project of a Multi-family Mid-rise building. Adjacent to the iconic mid-century Town and Country Resort, The Society Ruby takes a fresh contemporary spin on mid-century style with a nod to timeless design.

The aesthetic embodies the calm, cool, and collected California lifestyle. ABG had the honor of designing and producing the sculptural lobby wall as well as the Entry mural from the resident parking lot. With all hands on deck we finished the project in 7 days.





 

Celebrating Cultural Harmony: ABG's Mural Unveiled in San Francisco's Richmond District

On March 5th, ABG's founder, artist Xiao Rui, better known as Sorell Raino-Tsui, embarked on his most ambitious project yet – a monumental mural commemorating the diversity of San Francisco's Richmond district. Spanning an impressive scale of about 68 squares, each measuring a substantial 7ft x 7ft, this mural stands as a testament to the vibrant tapestry of cultures that define the area. From insightful discussions with seniors to imaginative brainstorming sessions with elementary students, every perspective was valued and woven into the mural. Big shout out to everyone involved in making this project come to life.


Six weeks of dedication led to a breathtaking art piece that resonates across generations, capturing the essence of the Richmond district in a beautiful composition of colorful patterns and iconic symbols. As it proudly overlooks the neighborhood, it serves not just as a work of art, but as a living testament to the unity that defines this remarkable community.




 

SOME THINGS COMING UP


Revitalizing Alamo Plaza: A Collaborative Endeavor with Bay Area Redwood

The finishing touches are being delicately applied to our Alamo project, marking a vibrant transformation of this once mundane space, all thanks to the visionary support of Edens. We're thrilled to unveil three distinct areas within Alamo Plaza, each infused with creativity and purpose.

First among these is the captivating "Tunnel of Love," a sprawling 16ft x 60ft mural that breathes life into the surroundings, in a bright welcome of color. Additionally, our team has crafted eight iconic postcard murals, each measuring an impressive 10ft x 10ft, providing both wayfinding guidance and a charming nod to the area's rich heritage.

However, our most eagerly anticipated addition is the enchanting kids' area, where imagination knows no bounds. Here, an expansive 8ft x 40ft mural sets the stage for play, while our collaboration with the artisans at Bay Area Redwood brings the essence of a truly organic play space. Utilizing locally sourced trees, each handcrafted piece adds a touch of nature, inviting parents and children to explore and enjoy.

Our heartfelt gratitude goes to Edens for their unwavering support and partnership throughout this transformative journey. Additionally, our sincere appreciation goes out to the dedicated team at Bay Area Redwood for their invaluable contributions, enriching our project with their expertise and passion. Together, we've breathed new life into Alamo Plaza,
