Last night, Senior Associate Marcus Luciani graciously accepted an award from Senator Ricardo Lara on behalf of Studio One Eleven. Each year, the senator selects businesses throughout the 33rd Senate District who he states have gone “above and beyond the call of duty” to improve upon our economy, “create jobs, generate important revenue, and innovate to create a better community.” Studio One Eleven was selected to represent City of Long Beach, District 2, and was among 22 other small businesses representing the area in which they are located.

After welcoming remarks from Mayor Robert Garcia, each business was individually recognized for their contributions to the community. Studio One Eleven received accolades from Senator Ricardo Lara for their participation in “a variety of community driven endeavors which richen the fabric of the city,” through contributions to “several organizations serving the borders of Long Beach.” He also recognized the studio’s city improvements such as the Broadway Medians, 1st and Linden bulb-outs, tree planting program and parklet program.
Upon receiving the award Luciani stated, “our practice was founded with a commitment to designing vibrant communities and there is no more important a community to us than that of Long Beach. Our staff and leaders not only work here but live here and are part of the fabric. We will continue to enhance and enliven that fabric through our urbanistic approach to architecture, landscape and design in addition to our non-profit community programs.”
Studio One Eleven is grateful to be recognized by Senator Lara for our commitment to the City of Long Beach.
