Erected in 1928 of steel and concrete construction, the six-story Santa Monica Professional Building features an unusual plan embellished by the Plateresque variant of the Spanish Colonial Revival style. Features of this style include ornate low relief carvings highlighting arches, columns, window surrounds, cornices, and parapets. Features that also typify the style include stuccoed exterior walls; low-pitched, multi-level tile roofs; narrow casement windows; arched door openings; iron railings and window grilles; and corbeled balconies. The facades of large buildings often are enriched with curvilinear and decorated parapets, cornice window heads, and a symbolic bell tower.
