The Press – Merit Award

An abandoned Los Angeles Times print facility is reborn as a creative office in this 430,000-sf adaptive re-use project. Portions of the once dark, monolithic three-story complex are selectively subtracted to achieve thriving habitability while retaining its industrial past. Subtraction reveals the previously unseen: the high volume of a former press line, or austere steel once hidden by tinted glass. Spaces for machines become spaces for people.

“The design successfully preserves and upgrades; the new interventions are well conceived and executed. The open space and landscape design are particularity strong and additive to the user experience.”
