Venue at Mission Bay
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA The design for Venue at Mission Bay, completed with Seidel Architects, consists of 147 apartments in a six story courtyard building. The project base podium structure includes approximately 9000 SF of retail space, the main building entry lobby with leasing space, and accommodates 147 resident parking spaces in the basement and ground level garage. The residential program above this podium consists of a variety of unit types, including junior one bedroom, one bedroom units, two bedroom units, as well as some multi-level townhouse units.
The San Francisco Design Guidelines established different design character for the various streets around Venue at Mission Bay. The main/ front faĂ§ade on Fourth Street faces that major arterial with predominantly six stories, stepping down to ďŹ ve stories, with a glazed ground level retail frontage that steps in and out creating an interesting community experience. Mission Rock Street and the Vara are envisioned as neighborhood streets with a residential scale, including residential units up about half a level on the Vara with entry by individual stoops that ascend to their front door entry terrace to enhance the sense of community.

Shanghai OCT Block 13 Mixed-Use Development SHANGHAI, CHINA This project site presents a unique challenge of linking two sites of varying scale, use and context. The project includes both small and medium scale multi-family housing on a site with existing residential units and a large-scale research and development park planned for the adjacent site. Borrowing from the existing residential development found on the same block, designers developed the overall planning strategy, grid, and orientation. Within this organization, the building volumes transition from medium scale to larger scale to match the adjacent context. The program is similarly displaced with the residential buildings oriented towards the adjacent residential context and the larger programs, including the club/ďŹ tness and hotel, facing the future research and development site.

Shanghai OCT Block 4 Mixed-Use Development SHANGHAI, CHINA This new development contains a mix of commercial ofﬁce space and residential units. The site is bordered by two water canals and a large landscaped berm and these unique edges are reﬂected in the project’s speciﬁc massing proﬁles. Along the water’s edge, the project’s front, the massing is lowest and least dense and becomes higher and denser along the back, landscaped berm. Spacious public, pedestrian-oriented space is created at the ground level of each building and an open, landscaped square sits in the middle of the four buildings. The master plan approach, creating an appearance of randomness within a highly structured order, translates to a variety of open spaces and building heights while creating a consistent scale and mass across the entire block.

The towers are linked at the base with common amenities and an exhibition/ conference center. Retail shopping and restaurants at grade will serve businesses as well as nearby residents and visitors.

The area will also incorporate an internal body of water referred to by the competition committee as ‘High Lake’, which the design team re-interpreted as a network of ‘ﬁnger lakes’ integrating water and land throughout the site. The total building area will be 80 million SF, including a waterfront eco-business district (EBD) with hotel, conference, dining and entertainment, and an ecological model community mixing residences community services and public open space. This new landmark community in Hunan Province will gracefully integrate many public and private spaces in harmony with the local landscape. While the detailed planning has not yet started, local press coverage indicates that the community and government are eager to realize vision of Changsha Songya Lake as an ecological, vibrant and livable community of international distinction.

Suzhou Creek North Bank Tower
SHANGHAI, CHINA In Shanghai, the Suzhou River is a signiﬁcant tributary within the inner ring road that deﬁnes the North-South Center of the city. The North Center of Suzhou River (Blocks 41 and 42) is recognized for its historical signiﬁcance. Responding to the challenge of adding life and energy to this site ﬁlled with historic but under-utilized warehouses and manufacturing facilities, the design provides for a new and improved urban environment that reactivates the waterfront and connects the community to a new subway stop, internal parks, performance hall, urban plaza, and central park which deﬁnes redevelopment of a larger district. Weaving the new development, consisting of SOHO ofﬁce buildings and other cultural, boutique retail amenities, with historic structures to redeﬁne a traditional community was the underlying principle behind this reinvigorating design.

Diablo Valley College, Commons Project PLEASANT HILL, CALIFORNIA A new Student Services Center at Diablo Valley College includes Food Service and a Culinary School—all located around a new central college Quad. A previous master plan had proposed that these functions be divided into two new buildings and placed in the location of existing building footprints. This program would require the need for extensive swing space during construction— including swing space for the cafeteria’s working and instructional kitchens—a space type that is expensive to temporarily house and logistically difﬁcult to move more than once.

Golden West College, Learning Resource Center HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA The Golden West College Learning Resource Center incorporates 50,000 SF of general collection space for approximately 65,000 volumes, an Information Commons for tutoring and instructional support, a New Media wing, and community-accessible spaces for meetings. This state-of-the-art facility consolidates campus resources, but also supports the learning process by providing increased computer access for both students and staff. Working with College leadership, administrative staff, and building user groups, the project team completed program veriďŹ cation. The new facility is located at the west edge of campus, a site which was chosen for its prominence at the entry of the College and its potential to connect the institution with the Huntington Beach community. Orientation and layout of programmatic elements facilitates views to an adjacent California native garden and interaction with a primary pedestrian pathway that links students to the center of campus. Interior organization focuses on the juxtaposition of zones of quiet, contemplative spaces with collaborative and social areas.

including seismic strengthening of the existing structures and inclusion of ﬁre protection systems. The project also provided the opportunity to update the exterior image and energy performance of the buildings by providing a new “skin” as well as updating the interior spaces with new ﬁnishes. The existing outdated commons building was replaced with a new building that provides support functions for the Hitch community including study areas, ofﬁces, laundry facilities, vending, and a multipurpose space that includes a display kitchen.
Today, the complex has been transformed into a memorable and socially vibrant environment for future generations of students. Each suite has two bedrooms, a bathroom and a living room. In addition to the renovation, new courtyard and recreation spaces were developed, along with a new commons building that houses a community kitchen and multipurpose rooms. The new design capitalizes on views to the neighboring mountains and ocean, creating a unique student environment and a haven from the remainder of the urban campus.

San Jose Civic Center
SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA Steinberg in association with design architect Richard Meier & Partners, led the program development phase and served as the primary point of contact with City leadership. The San Jose’s 550,000 SF City Hall is the most prominent and visible new building commissioned by the City in recent memory. This 18-story ofﬁce tower has already become a symbol of this growing international city and hosts visitors, investors, and businesses from around the world. It is anchored by a pedestrian friendly plaza that is activated by the presence of public art and hosts large social gatherings. In addition to its important civic and public functions, the building has revitalized a dilapidated section of downtown and become a catalyst for social and economic activities. With the recent achievement of a LEED Platinum rating, the San Jose Civic Center is projected to remain a civic icon for generations to come. *designed in collaboration with Richard Meier & Partners © Scott Frances/OTTO
