Guess Where - Reader Tip

Can you guess where this building is?

And what it is?

Inside the lobby there are more painted arches like this and at least one mural:

It's an apartment building on 8th and Irving, right between Pasquale's pizza and the "Sunset Apartments".

It's been on my list to photograph. I don't know what kind of arches these are but there aren't seen too much in the Sunset. (edited to add: I've been calling this the "Moorish" building, and the horse shoe arches are also called Moorish)

A reader recommended checking it out.

I found much more of interest than just the arches. The entry is full of wonderful details.

According to the City, it was built in 1927.
