Longtime San Diego architect Doug Austin has more than a few prestige credits under his belt, not the least of which was his appointment by the city’s mayor to oversee the design and construction of the San Diego Padres’ home, Petco Park.
Tall windows and a large moving wall of glass decorate the condos.
Huge expanses of glass let in tons of natural Southern California light.
The condo’s open floor plan is perfect for letting ocean breeze course through the space when the doors are open.
A large multi-slide door in the bedroom opens the room to the outside.
Austin also cites the slim profile and easy operating system of the giant multi-slides, which come in three- to five-panel sizes (creating up to an 80-foot opening) depending on the unit.
“They’re pretty cool,” he says. “The product met our design goals, and I was happy to get more floor-to-ceiling glass with them and more flexibility with the operable sash.”
The bathroom also features a tall sliding glass door.
Coupled with 10- to 12-foot ceilings and open floor plans, the huge walls of glass (supplied by San Diego dealer Picture Perfect Windows and Doors) in the units allow tons of Southern California sunshine and cool Pacific Ocean breezes to course through the penthouse condos, which come in two- or three-bedroom and 2.5- or 3.5-bathroom sizes. Also featured in the units are smart-home appliances by Miele, eucalyptus wood finishes and marble countertops, steam showers, and walk-in wine coolers. Along with three-car garages and a 24-hour concierge service.
