Images Description Credits
In 2014 a prominent art and design school purchased 128,000 square foot, six story, 1980’s mid-rise building at the end of the historic 110 freeway. The programmatic charge for this project was to radically enlarge and transform a small existing ground level café, and to create new vertical connections in the formerly stratified office building. At this new nexus we were asked to create a student commons including a café with a full-service kitchen, and an indoor / outdoor environment where students could dine, hang out, and work. All tables, built-ins, and casework were designed by the architect, including the power equipped centralized ‘super table’. The need for more vertical connectivity resulted in two new stairs; An open featured stair connecting level one and two and an enclosed stair down to the parking levels. Overall, the project creates vertical connectivity, an area for food, rest, work, conversation and culture.
