2130 Violet Street

Los Angeles, California

Architectural design services for a nine-story ground-up, high-rise, mixed-use, creative office and retail building featuring 109,100 square feet of office space, 3,400 square feet of ground-floor retail, four levels of parking for 275 vehicles, outdoor spaces including terraces, and a 3,000-square-foot rooftop deck/lounge with stunning views of the city and mountains. The building incorporates 27,000-square-foot open floorplates, high ceilings, and energy-efficient building systems and HVAC. The ground-up project included the reuse of an existing site, high-rise construction within small site constraints, and a focus on maximum coverage.

The design and aesthetic of 2130 Violet Street is heavily influenced by the Arts District’s industrial heritage, as evidenced by the exposed concrete and steel detailing. Recessed terraces on the office floors provide indoor-outdoor work and meeting spaces, and operable windows add to the flow of fresh air. The building’s retail fronts of steel and glass protrude along Violet Street to welcome pedestrians and permit the building to become part of the urban fabric for both office workers and the public. On the street level, a “green alley” with pervious pavement technologies, landscaping, public sidewalks and crosswalks makes the property a walkable environment.

This project won NAIOP SoCal’s 2023 Mixed-Use/Retail Project of the Year Award.
