Project Name: 831 Douglas Creative Office Building
Location: Los Angeles
Client: Continental Development
Categories: Office & Commercial, Interiors
Description: Renovation of existing 60,000 square feet office building to adapt to tenant’s desire for creative office with an exterior image appropriate to a state of the art publishing/internet firm. We created a 32-foot high “gate” element that also is the vehicular entrance to the project. Design elements include new large windows in the existing tilt-up panels that add more light to interior spaces. On the Douglas elevation, a series of strong tall projected bays were added to create dynamic expression and added presence to the street. A tall aluminum screen and canopy structure rap the southeast corner. This architectural feature is dramatically lit at night and also incorporates the tenant signage. The public entrance was shifted to the side of the building adjacent to visitor parking and directly across from another building which they occupy. A repeat of the screen & canopy elements were used to announce the entrance.
Scope of work: Complete A/E Services
