Chino Air Operation Center


A fleet of seven helicopters is housed in this facility at the Chino airport. The roughly 42,000 sf. structure includes hangar and maintenance bays wrapped by a two story administrative wing and shop/storage areas. 

The large span structure features a butterfly shaped roof that drains to a central water collection channel distributing the runoff into a large bio-swale on site. The design is meant to evoke imagery of classic aircraft with sweeping sunshades and steel cladding.

The Barn

A mixed-use development in the West Center Street Promenade of Anaheim for LAB Holdings is called the B.A.R.N. - short for Business Arts Residential Network. The project features a large Barn type structure of “open plan” specialty retail / restaurants with a smattering of offices on an upper loft. This structure is separated from the five-level apartment tower by a generous garden court which sits on a podium above a parking structure. The remaining piece fronting the street includes two levels of apartments over a street level retail building.


Cathedral Canyon

The site for this mixed-use development is part of a transforming City Center in this up and coming desert community. The restaurant / retail component along the major thoroughfare provides a strong connection to the downtown, while the hospitality element features small hotel unit clusters set in a natural desert landscape.


Tustin Mazda

One of the highest sales volume dealerships in the country, this pseudo-Spanish style building was badly in need of an upgrade. Similar to the Hyundai project, Elements designed a comprehensive renovation that preserved the existing structure thereby drastically reducing the potential construction cost.


Prototype Office Building

Utilizing pre-engineered metal building technology, Elements developed a “kit of parts” for the construction of multiple office buildings for this Southern California company. Variations of the skin, massing and environmental control elements allowed for flexibility of the interior functions and siting.
