oB ECO BEACH LOFTS, SAN DIEGO, CA
-- ON THE BOARDS --
Located in the heart of Ocean Beach, this concept project was part of a series of feasibility studies we completed for a developer who was focused on sustainability and community. The project included four stand-alone units which each had flexibility for work-live home offices, multi-generational households and/or small vacation rentals. The design created private outdoor areas as well as large common areas for community garden plots, children play areas, a large, outdoor movie screen and sun decks. Some of the beach-appropriate details included an outdoor shower and surf racks, rainwater collection, permeable paving and grass-scapes, vertical green walls, solar power and a fruiting orchard which was intended to be shared with passers-by.
