This 284,500 sf outlet was inspired by Oxnard’s agrarian history interpreted through the use of vibrant colors, roof material and shapes, structural farm building framing, and fruit-crate label signage. Enlarged reproductions of fruit labels appear on tilt-up concrete walls; sheet metal ventilators cap roofs of the corrugated metal; a windmill and a water tank form the skyline. Building materials were selected with economy and scheduling among the main considerations.
The landscape concept was to treat the entry drive as a shaded allee’ and the parking lots as traditional orchards.
