About the Project


The Enso Apartments in San Jose, California, needed to feature a fresh and modernist design language to attract a younger generation of tenants. Thiel & Thiel was tasked with developing a renter-facing living experience, from the leasing office and pool cabana to the bedroom models and tenant-only club room and cyber café.

As an end result, the property enjoys a vivid interest level from individuals in the renters’ market and a reputation for being a property that encapsulates the lifestyle people are looking for when residing in Northern California.


  • The leasing office features a striking curved wall feature, spilling wood onto the ceiling above.



  • Model units feature well-dressed details and shiny objects to glitz-up the place.


  • A resident-only cyber lounge features a Mac and PC workstation, full A/V hookup functionality, unique seating arrangements, and a killer ceiling detail and chandelier.




  • Lighting details in the leasing office lobby.


  • The far side of the pool area features a shaded cabana, complete with a fireplace, seating, and a large-screen TV.
