Ideally situated within the Torrey Pines Science Center, Lot 14 is a class A warm shell, developed for biotech tenants. We envisioned the two-story steel frame structure over subterranean parking to be adaptable for a single tenant user, or up to six.
The long and linear building design is gracefully articulated through a series of setbacks and overhangs. The building features an angled glass volume and folding metal plane that highlights the entry and focal point of the composition. The base of the building is anchored through a series of natural stone tile clad volumes and features a steel colonnade that supports the second story. Extensive glazing at the first and second floors allows an abundance of natural light to penetrate the space, but recesses and overhangs provide relief from heat gain. The second level is suspended over the base at the Northwest corner, while a subtle angle in the glass volume softens the corner and directs visitors to the main entry.
