Embracing the natural elements of Surf City, USA. 


Our firm was the lead architect for Pacific City, a retail and mixed-use venue in sunny Southern California. Our strategy for this project consisted of complimenting the beauty of the natural elements surrounding the land: by using colors and materials reminiscent of wood and sand, our final architectural design paid homage to the blue sky, shimmering sea, and soft sand views from this beach-front property.
