Cascade Plaza

Harsch Investment challenged the design team to create lifestyle experience in a specialty center to be populated by mostly mid-box anchors. The dramatic forms, well-lighted arcades and tall entry elements were the beginning. Exterior tile was selected to achieve a high quality appearance with fresh but durable colors. The vocabulary also includes extensive use of timber-framed pergolas, large overhangs, textured CMU, stucco and wall-hugging green screens. The use of lighted window boxes and clerestory lighting emphasize the height of the buildings and create a warm sense of activity at dusk and after dark.
