Little Owl Preschool Raises The Architectural Bar

By Brian Ulaszewski

Turning onto Linden Avenue north of Wardlow Road, past the Bixby Knolls Car Wash, you might pass right by one of the best new buildings in Long Beach due to its understated confidence. Set back from the street behind a small parking lot, the two-story structure is playfully camouflaged by a living wall of plants covering half its façade. You also might not realize the building’s function until you notice a second, child-scale door in the entry vestibule—or perhaps the subtly-sized, weathered metal sign marking this as the home of Little Owl Preschool.
