Ojai Arcade Plaza
Through a very public process, RRM Design Group prepared the Master Plan, Design Guidelines, and construction documents for the new Ojai Arcade Plaza and its surrounding urban area. Significant improvements and redesigns were necessary to rejuvenate the aging park-like Plaza in the heart of Ojai and to help turn it into a vibrant Downtown area. The Master Plan revitalizes this Plaza area by including entry monuments, urban design fixtures, a central water feature, public art, new paving (with sandblasted designs), bronze leaves (inlaid in paving and placed on benches), an information wall kiosk, a dumpster enclosure, restrooms, and architectural enhancement of the surrounding buildings. RRM also collaborated with artists to creatively integrate art into the Plaza design.
