Los Angeles, CA
||285,000 SF, 250 Units
LA Lofts includes 250 loft units above ground-floor retail. A large punched-out aperture at the bottom of the building acts as an urban gesture and provides the building with a grand entrance towards the city. A large vertical element in the center of the building acts as a seam for two different building skins.
Vehicular traffic proceeds from the street into a five-level above-ground parking structure adjacent to the residential tower. The sixth level of the garage is an outdoor plaza while generous balconies provide residents ample outside space.
