LaScala is a mixed-use development situated on a full-block site with The Barcelona (also designed by Carleton Hart) in the Old Town district of Beaverton’s core. Together, the two buildings serve as a catalyst for downtown living, promoting transit-oriented and sustainability-focused urban development in the City of Beaverton. The five-story LaScala provides 44 apartments targeted to the local workforce in a mix of one- and two-bedroom units. Street-level retail is oriented towards the busy intersection at Lombard and Farmington. Resident amenities include an outdoor patio and gathering space on the top floor.
The building form has ample glazing and massing arrangements to provide visual interest. Building materials were selected to compliment both the existing and developing urban fabric. Both exterior and interior finishes are composed in a palette conveying quality and timeless sophistication while also upholding sustainability goals. Units are arranged to maximize views and take advantage of natural light with open floor plans for flexible living.
