2100 Kettner

2100 Kettner

“It was really designed to break down the mass and activate the ground plane as much as possible, creating lots of spaces for flow of indoor-outdoor spaces to the restaurants, as well as the lobby and piazza.”

Marin Gertler, Design Director & Architect, Gensler

 

Bellissimo!: Carbon-neutral mixed-use becomes Little Italy’s outdoor living room

2100 Kettner is the largest mixed-used, carbon-neutral office building in San Diego’s Little Italy neighborhood. The six level building has 14,000-sf of restaurant space at street level, outdoor gathering spaces at-grade and on the upper floors, plus outdoor terraces on each floor.

 

DCI’s San Diego office integrated cast-in-place concrete structural elements, post-tensioned slabs and shear walls with cross laminated timber panels (used as shade awnings).

 

 

Project Highlights

 

  • Carbon-neutral building: outdoor terraces promote natural cooling.
