Images Description Credits
This work transforms a defunct, awkward building along the I-10 freeway through an extensive renovation. A new exterior envelope dramatically re-shapes and re-proportions the building while working with the volumetric constraints set by its existing structural frame. The resultant form is visually more prominent, delivering a distinctive landmark, and a highly day-lit, sustainable workplace for a corporate client desiring a stronger connection and a distinct visual identity within its predominantly Asian-American community.
