For over 25 years, DeNova Homes has been at the heart of the real estate industry in California with a series of successful developments being constructed across the state. 2017 saw a major linkup taking place between the construction company and the respected architecture program at Orange Coast College which allowed more than 40 students the chance to explore the Aura development currently being constructed in the Costa Mesa region; as Orange Coast College has a higher than average transfer rate to four-year institutions it has become one of the most respected and impressive two-year colleges in the U.S. Learn more: https://www.facebook.com/orangecoastcollege/
DeNova Homes is constructing 33 new homes in the Aura development ranging in size starting at around 2,100 square feet. Orange Coast College students from the architecture and design program took a tour of the two model homes giving them an insight into the design choices undertaken to create properties the public will wish to buy for at least $800,000; the tour was not limited to the two model homes but also included a tour of the construction zone for the development to gain an overview of the development as a whole.

Established in 1947, Orange Coast College has developed a reputation for providing a two-year educational experience much closer to those seen at four-year institutions. The campus itself has been developed over the years to allow students to enjoy the architecture and design experience of the renowned architect, Richard Neutra; the college was also given the rights to an island off the Canadian coast, Rabbit Island, which became the focus of nature-based learning and research opportunities.
There is much to admire in the way the educational experience offered at Orange Coast College has been developed, including the continuing support provided by a weekly newspaper produced by students at the college. “The Coast Report” newspaper is printed weekly and distributed with a circulation of around 5,000 which is also published in an Online version through the college.
