Concerto

w/ Destefano + Partners

Principal In Charge: Douglas Hanson Project Manager: McShane Murnane Design Team: Geoffrey Elander duration: 1.5 years

Concerto is a multi-phased, dual-tower 30 story Mixed-Use tower in downtown Los Angeles. It’s design features a number of pedestrian grade experiences that attempt to integrate the mass of the tower into it’s urban context. Some of these features include a public park at the intersection of Flower and 9th Streets, Retail amenities at Flower Street, and multiple exterior canopies that relate the mass of the tower to the human scale. Architecturally, the design includes a perforated and triangulated metal panel at the curtain wall that is operable from the interior of the tower’s units and a central urban park at the 4th level of the design. My responisibilities were primarily within the Construction Administration phase of the project, which included Coordinating Architectural drawings with MEP, reviewing and marking up shop drawings, responding to RFI’s (1000 total), issuing Architectural Bulletins (1-20), as well as attending site visits and producing field reports (25). As I became more involved within the project, my duties also included that coordination and rationalization of some of the more complex geometric areas of the project, which included a large zinc-faceted area of the Loft building. Other areas that I worked on, more specifically, were the coordination of the design at the urban park on the 4th level, review and mark up of shop drawings prior to each concrete pour, the coordination of interior finishes for the kitchens and baths for 27 unit types, and the re-design and rationalization of both the tower and loft lobby spaces.
