THE STORY

The design intent behind The Garage was to create a contemporary, lodge-like atmosphere for the younger residents of Esencia at Rancho Mission Viejo. Bright colors are a strong theme throughout the neighborhood tying in the light, playfulness and contemporary feel of the homes and recreational areas. The large, orange garage doors are a statement piece for the building creating an open environment and connection from the street through a large field and back to the playhouses and communal tool shed where residents can borrow tools on an on-demand basis. 

The Garage, along with the other community buildings, provide an inviting setting for a diverse set of buyers ranging from first-time homeowners to 55+ move down buyers. The architecture still caters to "The Ranch" with its farmhouse look but a contemporary twist.
