Crocker Village Shopping Center, Sacramento, CA: Commercial

The design of the Crocker Village Shopping Center has been informed by the historic Western Pacific Railroad’s maintenance and railyards facility that was constructed on this site in the early 20th century, and by architecture from eclectic small town America, incorporating many of the forms and materials of those genres. This project is an integral component of Crocker Village, a 72-acre, pedestrian and bicycle-friendly mixed-use planned unit development located to the south of Sacramento’s central city area.

1831 S Street Retail, Sacramento, CA: Retail Shell

This structure occupies the northwest corner parcel in front of the popular R Street Market. Some of the details and forms echo the industrial idiom of the market complex.

Construction was completed in the Spring of 2007.

Midtown Building, Sacramento, CA: Mixed-Use

The Midtown Building is actually two buildings connected by a breezeway; the original building was constructed in 1963; a large addition was attached a few years later. Kuchman Architects was engaged by the building’s new owner to upgrade the exterior design and to renovate the interior public spaces. The first level of the building is being opened to the sidewalk to better engage visitors as a retail venue. A new wave parapet, steel awnings, latticework and a street-level colonnade are being combined to revitalize the façade. Kuchman Architects collaborated with DesignTech in the development of the interior improvements.

1901 S Street Retail, Sacramento, CA: Retail Shell

To create retail storefronts, large openings were cut into the existing concrete block walls of this 50-year old building. The existing wood roof trusses were exposed inside to highlight the animated structure. An alternating pattern of arched and straight parapets screen rooftop equipment and subtly reflect the forms present on the R Street Market on the opposite side of 19th Street. Construction was completed in the Spring of 2007.

College Plaza Shopping Center, Los Banos, CA: Shopping Center

Adjacent arterial Highway 120, this California Mission Revival style project was the first major complex to reflect new design guidelines established by the City of Los Banos for this heavily traveled corridor.

Skylights were used extensively to provide much of the interior lighting thereby reducing energy usage. The Food 4 Less market opened in the Fall of 2002.
