Farmer’s Insurance Addition

In association with Deems Lewis McKinley, San Diego, CA

Having a design that was both spacious and unobtrusive was the goal for the Farmer’s Insurance Group Regional Office Building as project manager for Deems Lewis McKinley of San Diego, California, these design challenges, along with numerous technical program requirements, made this project both rewarding and disciplined. Careful attention to parking layout, landscaping and difficult irrigation in the hard clay soil also added to the project’s enhancement of hit surroundings in the Carlsbad Research Center. The building’s 48,000 sq. ft. of interior layout consists primarily of open floor office space with a raised computer floor throughout. On the exterior, slightly textured dryvit panels and tinted glass give color and form to the structure’s steel frame.
