The Mark Taper Theater Renova�on The renova�on of this historic theater included everything from the lobby to the sea�ng to the ven�la�on. This $30 million project completely replaced all the building and theatrical systems with state-of-the-art designs and radically improved audience ameni�es. Changes include ligh�ng, electrical, air handling, sound, acous�cs and theatrical rigging and equipment. The lobby was updated and reprogrammed to gain more space for patrons. Restroom facili�es for men, women, families and patrons with disabili�es were created in a comfortable new 1,350 square foot downstairs lounge accessible by elevator and stairs. The backstage area- including dressing rooms, wardrobe, green room, etc.. were expanded and rebuilt. All of this was accomplished without altering the essen�al exterior architectural character of the Mark Taper Forum. The Interior finishes were selected to work with the original abalone �le wall in the main lobby. Reflec�ve and iridescent surfaces in the lobby play with the light in the same way the abalone does. The chain mail wall exposes the concrete drum structure of the theater. This wall lead patrons down to the new lounge located under the original theater. The design of the lounge addi�on is inspired by the circular form the building. It is a voluptuous space that exposes the beauty of the taper’s structure and celebrates it’s circular form. The ceiling is a “chandelier” that wraps around the building and contains a custom ligh�ng system. The floa�ng metal grillwork allows the ceiling to feel taller as it exposes the coffers of the original structure above. The custom sea�ng and display cabinets are curved to wrap around the building and the circula�on system flows and improves upon the original public space.

The California Endowment This ground-up construc�on houses the headquarters for the California Endowment. The design creates an urban garden, a community mee�ng center and approximately 130,000 usable square feet of sustainable innova�ve office space. While the large office block relates in size and scale to the municipal buildings in the area, the conference center spaces relate to the surround single story context, which are located East and South of the site. The design emphasizes the posi�ve rela�onships possible between indoor and outdoor environments in California, and achieves many sustainable goals. The en�re ground floor level is accessible to the public and contributes to the neighborhood by providing a research library, gallery and cafe; mee�ng rooms and training rooms are also available. These mee�ng rooms are designed to open onto the courtyard, which serves as a pre-func�on space. This rela�onship ac�vates the exterior space where users also frequently take advantage of for more casual ‘breakout’ mee�ngs. Overall the building serves the needs of the organiza�on well and has transformed the way they conduct business. It has also improved the quality of their work environment as well as exemplifies the message of openness and transparency that is key to the mission of The California Endowment.

Grand Avenue Realignment and Beau�fica�on This new Grand Avenue streetscape creates a more a�rac�ve and pedestrian friendly environment for the community and visitors to the Los Angeles Music Center campus. The project also crates a pedestrian link between the Music Center’s new Disney Concert Hall and the new Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. The new streetscaping be�er accommodates the increased pedestrian traffic generated by the Cathedral and Disney Hall. It provides addi�onal sidewalk area along the frontage of the Music Center as well as new plan�ng, street furniture and art installa�ons. The syncopated paving and plan�ng pa�erns crate a ‘non-system system’ that allows the trees to be located among a wide array of exis�ng local condi�ons such as curb cuts, exis�ng building massing and the lack of regularity in the previously exis�ng environment at street level.

Century City Mall Renova�on and Expansion New rela�onships were developed as the theater was relocated and spaces were ‘found’ by adding an upper level to the exis�ng outdoor mall. The new dining terrace works as a pre-func�on and gathering space for patrons. The new terrace supports the upper level as well as the new theater. New retail storefront guidelines were also developed and implemented to give the en�re mall a face li�. The improved outdoor spaces fuse program, landscape and sea�ng. The result is an upscale shopping experience appropriate to the clientele.

Ranch House This 7500 sf house shares its site with a popula�on of projected oak trees, requiring that the new house be sited on he general footprint of a pre-exis�ng residence and that a por�on of that house be retained. The inten�on was to generate an architecture that transforms the ranch typology in response to both the immediate and the global condi�ons of the site. Built almost en�rely of reclaimed lumber, the house acts as a device that controls and op�mizes natural light and ven�la�on while crea�ng visual connec�ons from the interior to the mountain views beyond. The program of the house was organized in concordance with this natural ligh�ng strategy and the par� that develops was a blanke�ng roof form that engages the exis�ng two story house while it folds, buckles, and splits in response to the terrain and the posi�on of the sun throughout the day. In�mately scale spaces are introduces under the blanket of the roof through box-like port elements. The result is a house that expresses a sense of physical comfort. The structure itself is in communion with the environment, the climate and the landscape. It is both heroic and comfor�ng. For the occupant, the house provides a relaxing atmosphere from which to enjoy the natural beauty of the site.

The Johnson Residence This renova�on of a 1932 Lloyd Wright house included the addi�on new gym, garage, spa and pool. Research was conducted to carefully evaluate the historical a�ributes of the home. The residence was carefully refurbished to allow it’s original detailing to be featured while, at the same �me, update with modern conveniences throughout the home. The addi�ons were designed to integrate with the originally structure and provide a seamless circula�on system into the original structure. The backyard became the new social focus point as the infinity pool, spa and shade porch were developed.

Services provided included a new concept design for the shopping center for the renewal and con�nua�on of the first regional shopping center in Los Angeles, master planning services, EIR and en�tlement support, and prepara�on of tenant design guidelines to help establish new standards of quality and design. Plans call for the reten�on of exis�ng major department stores, retail shops, and state-of-the-art movie theater, while adding new housing and a hotel to create a mixed-use community, and revisioning the en�re property with new and modern styling, landscaping, furnishing, and decora�ve ligh�ng, which will provide a special invi�ng ambiance. Storefronts will be transparent with character and iden�ty crea�vely built into them, suppor�ng the impression of the unique spirit of the merchandise and the mall. The renewed Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza will be a place where people can enjoy a stronger sense of community and a relaxed lifestyle.

Universal Studios Hollywood Masterplan The 391 acre studio is parceling off 1/3 of it’s land for a new residen�al and mixed used development. The development will include high rise, mid rise and low rise buildings. Height restric�ons were carefully explored in order to be sensi�ve to neighboring communi�es as well as the studio’s own criteria. The topography made the development of the site quite challenging and many studies were conducted to maximize the buildable area and yet maintain the natural slope of the hills. Under NBC’s green ini�a�ve, the master plan is going though USGBC LEED New Development Pilot Plan. Innova�ve solu�ons have been proposed to further the sustainable a�tude of the development, including an alterna�ve transporta�on network and a system of pocket parks and trails that connects the en�re site. Extensive studies were performed to sa�sfy the Environmental Impact Report required by the California Environmental Quality Act. Traffic, noise, ecological issues, and view corridors were some of the issues that were heavily analyzed.

San Diego Ballpark Village This is one expert from the 120 page Landscape Parcel Specifica�ons that were developed in conjunc�on with the high-rise architects and developers. A common landscape design concept throughout the Ballpark Village will �e together the various buildings and uses the ground level and create a unique pedestrian character for this new neighborhood. Ten street-level precincts make up the pedestrian character of the San Diego Ballpark Village. The landscape and hardscape have been designed with sustainable principles in mind. The campus will become LEED cer�fied when built.

Hollywood and Vine This was submi�ed as an RFP at the request of the City of Los Angeles. We worked with a developer to propose a mixed use development. Our project consists of three major components: • an urban village that includes public open spaces, circula�on for vehicles and pedestrians, a 75,000 sf retail center that ac�vates and enhances the ground plane around the site, as well as the MTA’s mul�-modal interface between subway, buses, cars, and pedestrians. • a 125,000 sf state-of-the-art office building fron�ng onto Hollywood Blvd. that creates a portal to MTA’s sta�on, is integrated with the ground floor retail, and takes great advantage of the spectacular views that exist on the site as well as views into the new development. • 400 units of residences designed for the market and crea�ng a variety of housing product types including urban lo�s, garden townhouses, and condominiums. The stated affordability goals of the RFP for housing will be met within the hollywood Parking boulevard faade under the development. is provided main plaza and buildings.
