Construction Notes from John:

This site, which is adjacent to a perimeter road and parallel to a major freeway, presented a unique problem for the client's program.

Because of the cost of the land, the amount of square footage required for rental space dictated two buildings, one facing the perimeter road and one behind the front building.

Extensive grading was required for a major portion of the site. This required structural retaining walls, which we made part of the building facing the frontage road.

The architecture was conceived as the type of soft Spanish ranch feeling we all agreed would compliment the style of the area.

Landscaping was given serious consideration, so as to blend in with the surrounding, native chaparral-covered hillsides.
