Vroman's Bookstore

Pasadena, CA

This 31,000 square foot book store and paseo along with adjoining 6-screen movie theater and restaurant was the first phase of a major plan to revitalize the Playhouse District in Pasadena. A street side cafe and newsstand, and a pedestrian paseo linking the theater to the multi-purpose quadrangle and theater create a festive atmosphere. The two story block-like contemporary design blends itself nicely into the fabric of "old town" Pasadena, just down the street. significance: This project was the impetus for revitalization of the Playhouse District of Pasadena, which is still developing to this date.
