701B was designed by LPA, Inc. It is stretching across a city block in Downtown San Diego, California. The 571,000-square-foot office building comes with 24 stories and has striking architecture as well as highly sought-after amenities.
In this project, LPA’s team that consisted of in-house architects, landscape architects, interior designers, lighting designers as well as civil and structural engineers utilized an integrated process to produce a progressive space that attracts tenants in commerce, tech, and finance field.
This modern office building is accessible from many of San Diego’s destinations, including from the Symphony Hall, City Hall, Opera, and Central Library.
The building entrance is signed with a striking, sculptural shade trellis. This functional and artistic trellis was inspired by the movement of Manta Ray when it glides through the ocean. There’s also a dramatic 65-foot, high glazing glass wall to help set the scene behind this striking sculpture.
Not only the glass wall, the design team also included the calming water feature known as the largest vertical water feature in the area to make a perfect addition to the scene. While the design exodus artistic touch, it remains functional to shade the outdoor amenity from the glaring sun during the day and to reflect the custom lighting elements in the nighttime.
There’s an inviting outdoor setting where visitors are welcome to dine, work, or lounge. A new restaurant in the building offers a luxurious outdoor and indoor dining experience with the views of the renovated lobby of 701B.
