CREATING ENVIRONMENTS THAT ENRICH PUBLIC LIFE GONZ AL EZ G O O DA LE A R C H I T E C TS
Creating environments that enrich public life. Gonzalez Goodale Architects was established in 1980 on the principle of improving the public environment through design excellence and sensitive client service. Today, the studio is led in partnership by Ali Barar, AIA, and Harry Drake AIA, CASp, and Founding Partner Armando Gonzalez, FAIA. With a commitment to the positive and enlivening impact that architecture can have on society, the firm maintains a team-based, collaborative design culture. Located in Old Pasadena, Gonzalez Goodale Architects occupies a building of our own design. Through the integration into Pasadena’s pedestrian alleyways, our usable urban landscaping, public art, and daylit studios, the building reflects the firm’s philosophy of design for the functional and poetic enrichment of the public life. Since our founding, we have served diverse public, private, non-profit, and institutional clients with an interactive, creative design process. Originating from our client’s guiding principles, our design approach is grounded in continual communication with client groups. The unique nature of each of these projects is a direct outcome of the nature or our client, their site, and their community.

CLIEN T: Cy press Equ it ie s S COP E: 85,000s f, 7 7 con dominium unit s ove r 2 l evels of retail, Co lorado Bo ulevard / Los Roble s Ave. CO NSTRUC TION BU D G ET: $50M Estimated
Replacing the existing, abandoned Macyâ€™s at the east end of this ever-changing mall, this project drives the east-west Paseo through to the city sidewalk system, flanked on one side by 6-story hotel and on the other by a 7-story mixed-use retail/residential building. The project re-connects with Pasadenaâ€™s early 20th Century Bennett Plan, which envisioned Pasadena not as a quaint string of one and two-story buildings, but, rather, as a robust, growing cultural and economic center that would extend in all directions with the kind of 6 and 7 story datum line that marked the heart of pedestrian cities like Paris and Rome. Cont. - The design fuses a contemporary retail / restaurant program - broad expanses of 2-story glass - with the classically-focused spirit of the proximate Pasadena Civic Center. A series of emphatically vertical pavilions, stitched together with revealed balconies, are capped by weather-covered penthouse terraces.

Sited in the heart of old Pasadena at a prime corner site - Fair Oaks and Green Street - and diagonal from the renowned Green Hotel Apartments, the new building falls within a compound of historic buildings under a common ownership. The existing buildings on the site held “façade easements,” and were smaller in scale than the proposed project. The project addresses scale by following the precedent of the Green Hotel and the tall buildings further north at Fair Oaks and Colorado, essentially ‘bookending’ a block of smaller buildings. It further addresses scale and historic issues by stepping back from its historic neighbors, thereby creating an extension of Old Pasadena’s alley system in to midblock. The new restaurant and Class A office space energize Green street and lightly hold the corner with a glassy, contemporary form that maintains the rhythms, textures, and guidelines of Old Pasadena.

MODERNIST TRADITION IN OLD PASADENA Fleming’s Restaurant
CLIENT: Arroyo Group, LLC SCOPE: 6,800sf restaurant with full commercial kitchen & bar, patio seating CONSTRUCTION BUDGET: $6M
Set along a block-long stretch of Colorado Boulevard that breaks the pedestrian continuity between Old Pasadena to the west and Midtown/Civic Center to the east, the new Fleming’s Pasadena restaurant serves as an architecturally and planning transitionary ‘pavilion’ building to the 11-story precast-clad office building and a fountain plaza on the northerly side. Special challenges include the pedestrian unfriendliness of the block, the diminutive scale of the restaurant in its mid-rise context, the Modernist/Classical interface, and a zero-setback requirement for the zoning district. Additionally successful approaches included: •
A publicly active program that engages both pedestrians and destination seekers. Correspondingly: a building of maximum transparency.
Set back on a pedestrian-usable plinth that lends it an ease, presence, and balance in regard to its neighbor. (This required challenging the zero-setback zoning and introducing outdoor plinth seating, weather-covered by the roof canopy).
A color/material simplicity that supports the transparency and helps it serve as a foil to both its historic and Modernist neighbors: Off-white Venetian plaster, gunmetal gray metal cladding of structural members and sunscreen.

PROVIDING A POWERFUL IDENTITY Marriott Residence Inn Pasadena CLIENT: RD Olson SCOPE: 180 keys, Fairoaks Avenue / Walnut Street CONSTRUCTION BUDGET: $30M
Located on a large transitional site that bridges historic Old Pasadena with the 210 freeway to the north, this 5-story hotel is of an overall mass and scale to provide powerful identity to the freeway, while maintaining articulation and detail appropriate to pedestrian life. Engaging the long narrow site with a series of linear pavilions, the project gestures to both the Mediterranean Revival and the classical roots of Old Pasadena, while retaining its own crisp and minimal character.

CLIENT: Bridge Housing, East LA Community Corporation (ELACC) SCOPE: 130 Units, 15,500sf retail 5 stories over 2 podium
Los Lirios â€“ in concert with the adjacent Cielito Lindo developments â€“ will provide a comprehensively-design environment that avoids repetition and celebrates both social and formal diversity. It will benefit the First & Soto METRO station with quality habitation, vital pedestrian life, and iconic backdrop to the Plaza, and a dramatic gateway to all radial points. It will be a project that both serves and expands METRO ridership by expanding the urban fabric in a way that is both vigorous and sensitive to the quality of city we are collaboratively creating.

CRISP ARCHITECTURAL CHARACTER Skid-Row Housing Development
CLIENT: PATH Ventures SCOPE: 10 stories, 200 units over 2 levels of office CONSTRUCTION BUDGET: $50M Estimated
Located at the center of L.A.’s Skid Row, the program calls for the provision of permanent supportive housing atop a podium of workforce development services. The client vision for the project includes transcending the punitive character of this housing type and this location, establishing a new architectural ‘flagship’ in Skid Row. The character of this flagship includes the same level of expression and amenity one would expect in downtown loft or condominium projects in any vibrant city: Maximized glass and transparency, crisp architectural character, outdoor terraces, and vertical exuberance.

CLIENT: AMCAL Multi-Housing Inc. SCOPE: 127 1 & 2 bedroom units, 6 live/work units, 13,500 sf commercial and community use, 234 subterranean parking spaces
Sited at the intersection of Walnut and Allen, as the latter street approaches the 210 freeway, this site, its immediate and extending neighborhood represents southern Californian automotive culture at its least dense and in its least pedestrian-friendly terms. Architecturally, the main commercial context is emphatically without disciplining rhythm or character, other than its ad hoc service-oriented functionalism and basic industrial construction COMPACT DEVELOPMENT PATTERNS The project fully leverages the proximate Gold Line Allen Station by maximizing allowable density, burying minimum required parking within the sub-grade and interior of the project, and providing a mix of pedestrian-oriented sidewalk arcades, storefronts, and uses. INTEGRATE PUBLIC AND PRIVATE. The threading of the sidewalk directly through the ground level courtyard, with the cafe being the invitational gesture, will provide pedestrians with opportunities for a landscape respite from Allen and Walnut, with additional views into the corner retail and an internal courtyard Live-Work unit.

GOLDLINE TRANSIT ORIENTED DEVELOPMENT 1st & Lorena Mixed-Use Development
CLIENT: A Community of Friends (ACOF) SCOPE: Sixty-three affordable housing units; 5,000 sf retail space; semi-subterranean parking
This transit-oriented development is located on the east L.A. extension of the Metro Goldline, and situated between two Boyle Heights landmarksâ€”El Mercado and the Evergreen Cemetery - and will offer community amenities desired by the neighborhood in a design that complements this highly visible intersection. On the ground level, this project extends the line of commercial uses west along First Street. A transparent retail faĂ§ade and entrances along First Street make this location inviting and identifiable during the day or night while a pronounced pedestrian entrance at the corner defines an urban edge. The first floor includes a lobby with a manager office, a variety of community rooms, residential services, and vertical circulation leading to the apartments above. Here, the residential component wraps around a landscaped courtyard that provides a central outdoor, shared space open to the west towards the quiet, park-like space of Evergreen Cemetery.

A RICH SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT LA Family Housing Mixed-Use Services & Housing Campus
CLIENT: LA Family Housing SCOPE: Full campus masterplan, entitlement, and implementation CONSTRUCTION BUDGET: $30M
In addition to providing permanent supportive housing for those with long-term disabilities, the L A Family Housing campus is designed to accommodate a network of services that address needs across the northwestern Los Angeles region. These include a medic al clinic that delivers medical, wellness, dental, eye, and mental health services; job center; housing center; enterprise spaces; a community/training room; and an area for various regional service partners to provide their programs. Developed around a central courtyard, this complex of housing, services, and L A Family Administration, is intended to offer the chronically homeless not only opportunities to develop a firmer foundation, but also to provide a welcoming sanctuary. This open-air welcome allows for various tiers of socialization or privacy, ranging from extroverted gathering spaces to introverted gardens. All human actions and interactions stem from spirit and attitude, and a rich and sheltering environment is a first step in establishing calm and acceptance.

CITY OF GARDENS DEVELOPMENT Altadena & Mohawk Townhome Development
CLIENT: Herald Investment Company SCOPE: 18 units (14 two-story townhomes, 4 studios) CONSTRUCTION BUDGET: $12M
In a balance between project density, (appropriate to economics and site activation), and adequate outdoor area/garden space, the 18-unit option was selected - 14 of the units 2-story townhomes and the remaining four (forming the back area 3rd story) will be studios. A contemporary style was proposed whose materiality and color tones will be resonant with the long traditions of both Craftsman architecture and wood-centered developer architecture in the larger neighborhood and the City. This approach - which will also combine porches and terraces with outdoor balconies - all in a well-setback setting that will allow rich tree cover and dappled sun/shade - will result in a project that is particular to Pasadena in both style and climate response.
