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.
