Office – Confidential

Project:

CONFIDENTIAL - CORPORATE

Project Type:

CLASS A OFFICE

Location:

LOS ANGELES, CA

Client:

GENSLER

Located in a Los Angeles high-rise, a large corporation [confidential] has been leasing four consecutive floors of traditional office space for many years. Though the 1970s tower has been renovated into a Class A structure, the tenant’s space remained dated.

The tenant commissioned Gensler to redesign the entire office while the 1,300+ employees worked from the company’s other local offices or remotely. After several years of design, planning/permitting and construction, the result is a modern work environment focused on transparency and openness. Each floor, approximately 26,500 square feet, is a hybrid of traditional and creative workspace. In addition to private offices, bullpens and conference rooms, the open floor plan provides a myriad of casual seating areas that encourage a more relaxed and collaborative climate.

 

The upper three floors contain the project’s signature design feature – an atrium flanked by open walkways and bolstered by three concentric meeting rooms on each level that jettison out of a curved wall. Gensler took advantage of the building’s large windows, which flood the open, airy space with natural light. 

A color palette of powdery blues, mustard yellow and white is used throughout the interior to complement the recurring use of oak surfaces. The large living wall installations provide an interesting juxtaposition of bold, green ombrés against the transparent glass of the floating conference rooms.

The furnishings and finishes of the project were handled by Tangram Interiors and Steelcase. Traditional cubical spaces were transformed into modern, open aisles with the addition of tables and chairs to provide more working surface and collaborative space. Sleek glass partitioned rooms from Modernus are used throughout the floor plan that allow for private, yet transparent settings.
