27th Street Warehouse

New construction of a 4,000 square foot CMU building for use as an office and incubator/warehouse space in Signal Hill. The project required substantial site work planning and engineering to access utilities and provide storm water drainage.

The designers took on the challenge of changing boring industrial facilities to vibrant and attractive buildings that would compliment the city landscape. The mass of gray CMU block is broken by red accent stripes of paint and red metal elements. Black storefront windows contrast with the block walls. The red architectural pop-out is both playful and whimsical. It breaks the flat facade introducing an interesting, tilted form. Expansive windows are protected from the southern sun by red metal canopies.
