Barrio Logan, San Diego // Artist Studios and Gallery

The Logan Arts Building plays a role in strengthening community identity in one of the oldest and culturally significant neighborhoods in San Diego.  Much of the industrial infrastructure in the area that supports the Port and Naval Base have evolved over time into an arts community.  The Logan Arts Building will be a place for many of those artists to create and share their works.  A paseja conserves a mural along the property line and provides light and access to the rear of the property.


The studios were carefully oriented and designed to optimize the lighting conditions for artwork.  Subtle and diffused light is drawn in from the north for greater color control.  High level lighting, wall space, and large storage spaces are incorporated to assist the tenants in creating their best work.
