Message from the Architect
“Designing the California Climbing Collective’s first boulder gym instalment was an exciting venture.
Being the first of our ICP Wall builds to hit American shores, the process of designing this facility was an absolute pleasure – an adventure of creativity, exploration, travel and collaboration with our client.
In the initial stages – many concepts and designs were developed, a few potential venues and locations for the client came and went. Eventually – we ended up with the venue we see now, situated in the heart of San Francisco.
Our client – a seasoned route setter and climbing coach worked very closely alongside our design team as we brought the vision to life. The vision being – a bold and unique space for climbers to feel refreshed and inspired to step into the modern world of climbing. A commercial bouldering hall offering walls that provided training and coaching functionality, while being an enticing space for community and socialisation.
