Downtown West Medical Office BuildingLos Angeles, California
Architectural design and civil engineering services for a four-story, 60,000 square foot Class A medical office building. The medical office building provides a state-of-the-art wellness campus and enhanced outpatient services to the surrounding downtown LA community.
The concrete and glass building features storefronts on the first level, with metal panels and tile bars completing the modern exterior aesthetic. A circular entry plaza serves as the core of medical campus and circulation hub, providing continued visibility and openness throughout the site, as well as linking the existing three-story building to the medical development. An adjacent nine-story parking structure is directly connected via a bridge on the third level.
The new building incorporated several sustainable features including a highly-efficient variable refrigerant flow HVAC system, heat recovery reuse throughout building zones to minimize energy waste, a 95% MERV 13 filtration system for the healthcare environment, and high efficiency LED lighting throughout.
