Carpinteria Corporate Center

Carpinteria, California

Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this business campus consists of four buildings with over 120,000 s.f. of office space and 16,000 s.f. of parking garage. Having to conform to strict height limits, the architects decided to emphasize clean horizontal lines and contrast them with bold vertical geometric forms. The result is a contemporary style that blends with California’s coastline. Earthquake faults, habitat setbacks, and public access to the coastal bluff all were carefully considered and planned for in the design of this campus.
