Transformation of unfinished storage area into a 1621 s.f. idea incubator for startups provided the opportunity to think about a space combining the informal hospitality of a coffeehouse and the technical aspects of a laboratory for ideas. Exposed structural elements, concrete, ducts and pipes are integrated with new windows, translucent polycarbonate and wood frame walls with striking blue and yellow graphics. This space is intended to accelerate the development of entrepreneurial creativity as it transitions to a real world launch. In an ideal location on the first floor of The Mosher Alumni House, the incubator is part of TMP’s partnership in the SEED-SB programs. https://seed-sb.ucsb.edu/#resources
The goal of creating a new social hub at La Cumbre Country Club was fulfilled recently in close collaboration with the La Cumbre Country Club Building Committee and Armstrong Construction. Our design for expanding the usable pool deck, creating a bar/eating area link between the 18th hole and the pool, creating a venue for weddings and summer pool parties has already made the pool complex a place where outdoor living, sports, entertainment and relaxation can occur simultaneously for families. The new Pool House is designed to be subordinate to the historic Main clubhouse but with a modern understanding of light and comfort.
