Description
A typical "commercial project with a mixed residential use" located in this area of downtown Encinitas would place the bulk of the building across the complete street frontage with the commercial below and residential above. We decided to change the rules and have some fun. To avoid this solid barrier section of the frontage is left open to allow access and a connection to the project interior. The residence becomes a seperate structure for privacy and a way to enclose the central private parking courtyard. A pedestrian bridge crosses the private parking court to connect the buildings at the second floor. Flexibilty is the functional design of the building has provided more than just a place to work and live. The parking court has doubled as a gathering place for special occasions including holiday parties and AIA meetings. #AIA #Architecture #Encinitas #Office_Building #Warren_Scott
