Located in Downtown San Diego, next door to the Museum of Contemporary Art and the Santa Fe Depot, the McClintock Warehouse Lofts are the latest trend in urban living. This unique Mission Revival, Nationally Registered Historic Building, has been an integral part of San Diego’s downtown commerce since its 1925 inception. Named after the initial intent of the building, great measures were taken by the design team to retain and expose the original concrete architectural elements, columns, industrial charm and storage details which make for an interesting contrast to the modern minimal interior.
The newly renovated building offers 40 Live/Work Lofts and 15,000 square feet of commercial mixed-use retail, office, service or restaurant space. Custom graphic art, patchwork carpet tile and bold signage detail out the black & white shell of the building. The McClintock Warehouse Lofts offer a laid back approach to zero commute housing thereby reducing carbon footprint, being eco friendly while saving both time and money. With that, we are proud to say, The McClintock Warehouse Lofts are the recipient of the 2012 Alonzo Award.

The design approach to Emerald City, Coronado Island’s premier surf and skate shop, was simple—to restore the building back to it’s original “bones” while doing so with an environmentally friendly mindset. By removing the lowered 9’ ceiling and beat-up slat wall covered drywall, the wood barrel vault ceiling and truss was exposed and the terra cotta block and brick walls were revealed. In addition, the existing façade was demolished, opening up the storefront showcasing the arches that hadn’t been seen for nearly 60 years. Now, this once dark and uninviting façade, has a stylish curb appeal with a demanding street presence, and the store’s interior boasts a unique design style featuring a mix of urban, industrial, and vintage feel that has been luring in the pedestrians walking Coronado’s famous Orange Avenue.

This hilltop home rests atop Mount Soledad looking out towards Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Aside from the million dollar view, the home’s interior has some pretty fabulous features as well. The dining room’s fireplace is clad with a unique, book matched slab of onyx commanding attention and admiration. The master bathroom showcases an oversized soaking tub, with an overflow feature that allows the user to fill the tub completely to the rim without a worry as the tub is designed for the water to spill over the edge safely into a receiving trough. The tub filler is mounted to the ceiling, which is quite an attraction in itself as the water spills from a tidy stream above filling the bath. The grand shower is equipped with 3 wall mounted shower heads and two overhead, oversized rain shower heads, in addition to steam- creating the ultimate showering experience. JWID also outfitted this fully remodeled home with a new, more open floor plan, remodeled kitchens & baths, custom millwork throughout, custom fish tanks, new flooring and finishes, as well as fully furnished the space with modern and comfortable pieces to allow the homeowner to entertain or simply enjoy his sanctuary in solitude.
