Once a non-descript tilt-up office building, the central courtyard of this 57,000-sq.ft. building becomes the focus of the transformation of this structure, which included architecture, landscape, and signage renovation. Initially an underutilized and under functioning courtyard space, the central outdoor space is now a vibrant outdoor room for all of the building’s tenants.
A slatted trellis structure around the main seating areas defines the heart of the courtyard, providing shade during the day and a lighted space at night. The directional slats also create privacy between the courtyard and adjacent offices. Various seating and lounge areas are now home to working lunches, creative collaboration, and casual conversations under the sunny San Diego skies.
