SKYLINE VILLAGE FOOD HALL – CORONA, CALIFORNIA

Commercial and Retail
SKYLINE VILLAGE FOOD HALL – CORONA, CALIFORNIA

EXTERIOR DESIGN AESTHETIC

The conceptual idea behind the exterior design aesthetic of the Food Hall is inspired by the historic citrus packing houses prevalent in Corona and reinterpreted as a contemporary industrial warehouse setting.  Natural light spills into the interior spaces from the clerestory glass of the saw tooth roof soaring above the two-story interior space. Exterior building materials of metal panel systems, full brick veneer, exposed steel frames support the concept while providing durable and low-maintenance building materials.  Vintage over-sized historic packing crate labels are expressed on the exterior of the building furthering the citrus packing house conceptual idea.  Raised planters that also serve as seat walls are introduced at the Entry Plaza and are patterned after vintage wooden citrus crates.  An actual producing small grove of citrus trees will also mark the Entry Plaza to the Food Hall.

INTERIOR DESIGN AESTHETIC

Following the language established for the exterior of the building inspired by the historic citrus packing houses of Corona, the conceptual idea behind the interior architecture continues that aesthetic.  Natural light created by the clerestory windows of the saw tooth roof helps to illuminate the interior dining spaces.  Dining furniture, lighting fixtures and interior finishes all maintain the packing house/warehouse aesthetic while providing a sense of whimsy to the project.

 

LANDSCAPE AND HARDSCAPE DESIGN CONCEPTS

The design of the landscaping and hardscaping for the Food Hall continues the aesthetic of the citrus packing houses.  Stone and metal cage walls called Gabion walls make an additional reference to the abandoned rock quarry located near the site.  Outdoor games are introduced in the forms of over-scaled chess boards and Bocee’ Ball courts .
