• Approaching the Entry, a welcomed departure from the fast food clutter, despite the sign

  • Arcaded Trellis and Entry

  • Street Frontage

Carl's Jr. Carpinteria

This Spanish Colonial rendition of the popular fast-food restaurant, 3,500sf., at 5 North Milpas Street, broke with the traditional fast-food plan and exterior, presenting a long arcade facing the parking area in lieu of the interior dining areas. A low garden wall defines outdoor dining to the sunny side of the building, partly covered by the trellised arcade.
