IRVINE SPECTRUM CENTER
The Irvine Spectrum Center is an entertainment based outdoor shopping center in Southern California, first opened in 1995. BCV Architects is working with The Irvine Company to re-envision Spectrum as a vibrant community destination, integrating curated retail, a variety of dining options and a reworking of public plaza and gathering areas.
Among BCV’s recently completed projects at Spectrum are Brio and Del Frisco’s restaurants and a new gateway public space on the north side of the project which is designed as a great circular piazza. Interactive light features surround a large ficus tree, making this a dramatic entry by day and night. Ongoing projects envision a major evolution of the center's east-west circulation zones and the completion of the pedestrian loop.
