Rancho Hills Apartments Leasing Office

Rancho Hills Apartment Leasing Office

Project Description

This project proposes to convert a laundry facility building into a new leasing office, tenant lounge, and gym facility for the Rancho Hills Apartment complex outside of San Diego, California. We took cues from the existing Spanish style architecture, using terracotta as a material to create an outdoor screen which brings the users in to the new leasing office. The primary entry axis moves users along a curved glass wall, where they are able to visually engage with the the existing landscape, and into the primary building axis – a double height channel glass volume which lets diffused light in during the day and glows like a lantern at night.
