27236-27264 RT 189, Blue Jay, CA - Mixed Use - Retail/Office

GKA Architects provided architectural design services for the major renovation of their two-building, 50,000sf shopping center located in the Southern California mountain community of Blue Jay Village.

The project includes the complete removal and redesign of the facades of both buildings, including a new two-story clerestory-roof atrium entry for the anchor tenant, a regional supermarket chain. The project's steeply sloped, complex site - which rises two stories along the 180ft width of the multi-tenant building - poses considerable design challenges for the accessible parking configuration and path of travel.

The design utilizes mountain-lodge heavy timber language both for contextual aesthetics, and to meet California's strict Wildland-Urban Interface building and fire code requirements for the region.
