live/work masterplan

Los angeles is defined by many things: business, entertainment, culture, media, fashion, and much more. The identity of Los Angeles is constantly changing as more and more people move into the city. However, two elements that remain constant are people working and living in LA. This project strives to create a work/live urban development that is adaptable, innovative, yet still relates to the existing context. The basic concept for the development is a gradient approach. At one end of the development is large office buildings that are catered to large corporations and businesses. At the other end of the site, there are low-rise residential buildings that relate the to existing public housing. The two programs are then connected by support spaces and mixed-use projects.
