Directors Science Park

San Diego, California


151,500 SF

Inspired by the striations and layers of the nearby coastal cliffs, the design of the five story, 148,350 SF life science lab and office building offers dramatic views of Sorrento Valley towards the Torrey Pines estuary and the Pacific Ocean.

The magnificent vistas can be enjoyed from outdoor terraces on every floor. Continuing this theme, the Lobby interior design reflects natural earth tones and textures with a two-story sedimentary wall and cantilevered specialty concrete stair that is an artistic focal point for the project entry.

Targeted for LEED Silver Certification, the 2.5 levels of underground parking provides for electric vehicles and bicycles while the dynamic glazing adjusts to daylight throughout the day to reduce glare, heat gain and cooling.

Fully leased prior to start of construction, the Class A office space and ancillary amenities including the café, fitness center and event lawn detailed with commissioned art were attractive assets in a competitive market.
