BEYOND THE STATS

  • The Grand Lofts project, located in South Park near the Staples Arena, is significant in its re-use of an existing four-story structure as the base for three additional stories of new steel construction.
  • In order to bring natural light into the building, completed in 1927 as a warehouse for the Pepperdine Automotive Supply Business, a courtyard was cut through all floors including the basement. This allowed for additional units and balconies, and created unique, light-filled two-story units at the basement and first levels.
  • Vertical pilasters tie the old building and its detailing to the new structure above, and new pop-out elements on the east elevation provide distinctive spaces that float above the city below.
