Redefining Historic design

The Christianson Development has it’s most historically inspired commercial building design under construction now at 5414 Delridge Way SW. Inspired from a photograph showing two tilted Victorian buildings just following the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, the design achieves two important architectural objectives:

Most mixed-use structures are intentionally unintegrated and have brick ground floor designs with a residential looking concept above. Our new Victorian is designed as a unified structure, regardless of the use of the lower and upper floors.

The design answers our second objective by building genuine reproductions of historic buildings that contrast the current popularity of plain, masculine, dark, boxy structures. This Victorian has both feminine and masculine elements, with the intention of invoking the passerby to reflect upon our connections with the past. By creating a connection to the past, architecture has the possibility of inspiring a community to grow and change.
