Location: Davis, California

A three-story mixed-use project in downtown Davis with first floor retail / restaurant space and eight two-story loft residences above. The 17,000 SF building has a playful assemblage of forms creating a "gateway" to downtown Davis. The "Art Deco" design cues allude to the site's former "Streamline Moderne" gas station. The design also captures the spirit of nearby light industrial and manufacturing buildings. The stepped roofline creates dynamic interior living spaces, enhanced sun and light penetration and a comfortably scaled and lively street edge.
