Westmont of Encinitas Completes

Ware Malcomb Provided Architectural Services for Assisted Living Center

SAN DIEGO (January 6, 2022) – Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, today announced construction is complete on Westmont of Encinitas, an assisted living center for seniors, located at 1920 South El Camino Real in Encinitas, California. Ware Malcomb provided architectural services for the 91,334 square foot project.

Westmont of Encinitas is a two-story garden-style structure built on 3.2 acres. It incorporates 101 beds and 93 units: 35 studios, 50 one-bedroom units, and 8 two-bedroom units. Designed in the Craftsman style with coastal influences, the structure is built on a wood and steel frame. A clean and modern aesthetic was created through careful choice of building materials, including board and batten, stucco, a standing seam metal roof and rough sawn wood bracing. A light and inviting earth tone palette is complemented by crisp white and red cedar. Inside, amenities for residents include an indoor therapy pool, library, theater, beauty salon, activity rooms, full fitness center, full-service kitchen and a commercial laundry center.

“Our San Diego team was proud to work closely with Westmont to bring their vision to fruition, and we believe the residents will find it a beautiful place to call home,” said Brian M. Koshley, Regional Director of Ware Malcomb’s San Diego offices.

Construction on Westmont of Encinitas was led by general contractor Westmont Construction. Westmont of Encinitas prides itself on providing the right amount of support for seniors seeking active, maintenance-free lifestyles with added help for daily living activities.
