Ten on Columbia

The design of the proposed in‐fill development at Columbia and Hawthorn Streets in San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood is unique and modern, it addresses the surrounding scale of the neighborhood while exhibiting modern materiality and presence. The development of TEN begins by demolition of three dilapidated single family homes along with the removal of a billboard that has blighted the neighborhood for years.

Ten Dwelling Units

Comprised of ten dwelling units ranging from approximately 650 square feet to 1350 square feet along with included parking, Each new unit will contain expansive floor to ceiling windows and patio doors for natural ventilation and light along with high ceilings and views to the waterfront and downtown cityscape. In addition, each unit will offer expansive outdoor patio and roof deck space ranging in size from approx. 180 to 350 square feet, connecting the indoor and outdoor space for a vibrant downtown living experience with expansive views.

Challenging Site Solutions

TEN on Columbia possesses a challenging yet promising site. Bordered by Columbia street to the north, Hawthorn street to the south, and neighboring parcels on each adjacent side, this small lot at 5,000 square feet holds much promise for urban in‐fill. The grade of the property has a slight change from Columbia west to the ocean allowing for a tired effect down the hillside. Although a corner lot, TEN is situated in an FAA height restricted zone mandating a 36 foot height limit. The upside to this being views are maintained from our last development along with any potential new building in the future.

Rich Urban Dynamic

The design’s materiality plays upon the use of contrasting building cladding materials for a rich urban dynamic. The exterior cladding, utilizing such quality materials as Brazilian hard wood siding and decking with a warm natural color and feel, white stucco with a paper smooth finish, Onyx shingle siding, custom metal work, high‐performance aluminum framed glazing and mullions and white concrete block with detailed grout lines enhance the urban fabric at the neighborhood and street level. Once inside any of the four units, living space opens up at the human scale with warm bamboo flooring, high ceilings, smooth finished walls, built in storage components, custom kitchens and baths with detailed ceramic tile work and custom countertops. From the scale of the city to the scale of the home, this design’s materiality offers a uniquely modern sensibility and feel, while remaining very tactile to the human touch.
