Ocean Street Beach Access

2020 | Under 5000 SF, Multiple Applications

2020 DCC Awards Winner
Ocean Street Beach Access, T.B. Penick & Sons, Inc.

First Place: Multiple Applications, Under 5,000 SF

Located between two residential properties in Carlsbad, the Ocean Street beach access leads visitors to the beach below and was part of the city’s overhaul of properties degraded over time by the coastal environment. The project’s main challenge was limited access due to narrow streets.

The project entailed redesigning the stairway to include seating nodes, overlook platforms, and native California plants. The T.B. Penick crew integrally colored the concrete used for the stairs, and broadcast a blend of seashells, crushed colored glass, and crushed marble aggregate at the landings.
