2018 | Under Construction

Our client is actively transforming underutilized sites in northern Glendale and asked us to be a part of the process. The site contained an agglomeration of buildings from the past 85 years that had been used for everything from church offices to automotive repair shops. Under tight zoning and budget constraints, we worked with the team through an iterative process to produce a mini-campus for production studios that takes advantage of the site's location to nearby entertainment companies.

The structure with gabled roof, once literally cut in half in order to widen the road, was completely rehabilitated. The building's exterior is formed by strips of standing-seam metal with a subtle banding of narrower strips that form a 'cut' between the two diagonal windows. This band wraps continuously up and over the roof, returning to the ground on the entry facade. We thought it appropriate to leave traces of the building's storied use in the heavily marked concrete floor, which contrasts well with the new open interior and the unique assembly of the original trusses.
