Rohnert Park, California
A returning client hired us to build a two-tenant commercial building in Rohnert Park, California. Guiding the process through all design stages required constant communication with our client and the city, especially since the original land use permit exclusively approved a single-tenant building. We developed a design that met requirements in as few site changes as possible while providing our client with all their desired amenities.
Completion date 2018
Size 4,550 square feet
Working with a long, narrow strip of land, we incorporated multiple steps and pilasters to provide interest along the front end of the building and to create a space with more visual intrigue than a standard strip mall façade.
We added modern touches within the parameters of Rohnert Park’s Mediterranean style requirement. Classic materials, such as the red tile roofs, stone veneer, and stuccoed exterior, deliver the requisite aesthetic, while the building shape and elements suggest a more streamlined approach. The arches along the façade also contribute to the Mediterranean style.
The result turned out very well, and now a Starbucks café occupies the southern tenant space while the northern tenant is yet to be determined. We are excited to see who moves in and will proudly watch as our client’s new commercial space thrives!
