Project: 13,000 s.f. multi family and mixed use
Location: Santa Barbara Ca.
Description: This project repurposes an existing commercial shell to become a multi-family live/work building. A composition of shipping containers supported by steel structure above the existing roofline provides the new residential area while the shell below is modified to provide new roll up doors and entries on the street. The project seeks to provide a creative solution to the future of Santa Barbara urban living and an option for those looking for true live / work architecture. The ground floor could be used for creative office area or workshop and would benefit form the existing warehouse feel of the building shell. Roof top gardens capture and cleanse run off rainwater while outdoor spaces provide views to the mountains beyond.
