EMBRACE YOUR BEST LIFE

ArtLofts is about community, designed by artists for artists.  Offering 28 units for lease that share 9 communal workspaces, a digital media lounge, communal bbq, gallery, and exhibition space.

Reducing multiple rents by combining not only Work and Live for an artist and student but also providing on site exhibition space reduces expenses and nurtures a small collective of artists and students that may otherwise be priced out of the costly and supply constrained Laguna Beach market creating a unique cultural experience unmatched anywhere.

ArtLofts will be the newest stop on the LCAD shuttle route connecting the property to the South Campus, Main Campus, Big Bend, and Club Laguna.  This is a free service only offered to students and you are strongly encouraged to use it when traveling between these destinations.  The shuttle stops approximately every 45 minutes and runs from 8am to 10:30pm Monday - Friday.
