US Marine Corps Housing
This award winning project was designed with 96 suites housing 296 enlisted military personnel. Located in Southern California, outdoor access to each suite was provided through exterior corridors, patios and sitting areas. The central core area contains lounges, laundry, administration and utility spaces. Full three-story tilt-up concrete panels and composite floor slab construction on pile foundations were designed for economy and durability. Brick stair towers and brick paving in the forecourt were added for texture and colour. Roof mounted solar panels were provided for domestic hot water and heat. Mark Hall was principal-in-charge and architect of record for ARCHIPLAN/Carl Maston joint venture.
