Pierside North Hotel Architecture, Oceanside, California

Pierside North

GF Properties
66 units


It is a 66-unit apartment building located in Oceanside, California – one block from the beach and the historic pier. The edifice is part of a five-block development enhancing Oceanside’s downtown. JOHNSON NATHAN STROHE is the architect and interior designer for all units and public spaces.


City guidelines call for a mission style architecture in the redevelopment of this site in Oceanside. Classic white stucco and a decorative metal railing provide visual interest to the building facade. The courtyard counterposes the building architecture with a modern design and aims to enhance the living experience.

The interior design responds to the active Californian beach lifestyle. It balances a contemplative attitude with energy and rhythm. Classic elements create a timeless design. The strength of the pier, which is a landmark in the city, is translated to the design by material details. A sense of adventure comes across the use of fire pits, playful lights, and accessories that are meant to tease the mind, reflecting the energy from the sea.
