DSEA designed two multi-tenant restaurant buildings in close proximity to the campus of CSU Fullerton. The design responds to the character of one of the University buildings with a curved facade. These two buildings were designed and constructed at different periods of time. The more recent building includes tall cylindrical forms to respond to fast-moving traffic from the adjoining 55 Freeway, and provides unique recognition of the complex from a distance.
The initial building is 6,800sf and provided flow through tenant space which was accessible from the parking lot on the south side of the building, and included outside dining on the north side of the building. The more recent building has similar configuration tenant spaces but larger depth where it could be expanded to adjacent to the freeway.
The second building was a replacement building to a previous restaurant that was destroyed by a fire. The design and construction had to fall within insurance claims, and was monitored closely from a cost basis while still providing unique design elements responding to the University across the street and the freeway.
