Adaptive Reuse

Southern California

Throughout the history of the site buildings and machinery have been added in a purely utilitarian fashion with little regard to aesthetics. The result of this development strategy is that truly unique conditions to this site occur with regularity. 

It is our belief that the existing character and unique conditions are what could distinguish this site from surrounding properties. As such our approach to the design is based on the idea of recycling the defining features of the existing structures vs. redefining what the DNA of the site is. 

Through this approach, the uniqueness that inhabits the site and structures now will be maintained while giving it new life through office and retail use.
