Sunnyvale Shopping Center

SUNNYVALE SHOPPING CENTER


Heralded by San Jose Mercury News’s Architectural Critic as “a sensitive rehabilitation by Crome Architecture”, “…The mid-century modern Sunnyvale Shopping Center at 144 El Camino Real has been artfully restored and repainted, gracefully re-landscaped, and given a new gleam.”

 

While older strip centers are often updated with uninspired Spanish or Tuscan facades, this renovation and addition played up the retro qualities of the existing center, and celebrated its history as part of the postwar golden age Americana car culture. The recycling of the center, besides being environmentally friendly, also retained a distinct personality that makes it stand out in a cultured marketplace.
