Costa Mesa Mitsubishi

Commercial and Retail
Costa Mesa Mitsubishi

Located in the bustling auto dealership zone of Harbor Boulevard in Costa Mesa, Costa Mesa Mitsubishi needed to be eye-catching from street to compete with its neighbors.  This was achieved by constructed a large, exposed steel and glass showroom and framing it with the use of large-scale, poured-in-place concrete columns at the perimeter that are reminiscent of freeway bridge columns.  At night, the showroom has a lantern-like effect as viewed from the busy street while during the day it is the almost brutalist language of the building that attracts attention.

Donnie DeWees designed this project while an Associate and a Project Design Director for another firm.
