LaScala Mixed Use
Roy Kim, Developer
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 5-story LaScala provides 44 apartments above street-level commercial spaces oriented towards the busy intersection at Lombard and Farmington Road in Beaverton. CHA worked to inspire an active street life through retail and restaurant spaces that engage the Right of Way with glass roll up doors. The ground floor’s LaScala Food Hall contributes to the vibrant neighborhood atmosphere with a variety of restaurants, bakery, café, and Vault bar.
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 timelessness while also achieving sustainability goals.
