Creating a community where life tastes better
The Cannery, located in Davis, California, is designed to be a new home community that focuses on healthy and sustainable living with amenities that include abundant park space, an amphitheater, bike and walking paths, urban farm, and a retail center called the Cannery Commercial District.
The Cannery Commerce District will provide general and medical offices, retail, and restaurants that support the neighboring homes and surrounding area. The Cannery site also provides outdoor space and amenities, connectivity to the neighborhoods, leisure activity, and communal gathering.
The architecture for this project needed to reflect the rich history of the family ‘farm’ surrounding the City of Davis. The forms, massing, use of materials, and colors are reminiscent of the many family farms that have historically played a major role and influence on the local community and its way of life, as well as stand as icons upon the landscape.
