PIXEL

MID-RISE TIMBER CO-WORKING OFFICE IN ARTS DISTRICT, LOS ANGELES.

2017 | OLIVIER TOURAINE STUDIO

This project pixelates the site to rationalize the irregular geometry of the lot, in order to enforce the verticality of the building with each slender extrusion from the pixelation. Each “pixel” is extruded up and down to interact with the local context of Arts District, and also to create spatial variations within the building without the traditional use of walls to divide programs. This project proposes a new type of office tower in response to the new office style of coworking spaces, in effect challenging the traditional “pancake slabs” office typology.
