The Concept

The rooftop social area is inspired by the sunsets and transition to night along the San Diego coast. In the covered roof area, the copper roof represents sunset, surrounded by the bay and ocean inspired glass walls. On both sides of the covered spaces, there is open air seating inspired by nights out along the beach, with sand colored tile, wood furniture and numerous fire features. From the west facing spaces, a view of the bay and sunsets over the bay with the Point Loma Mountains can be viewed each evening.
