VESSEL

fifth year | fall '19

Located in heart of the Los Angeles Arts District, Vessel is a project that explores the a new typology for an office building, being designed entirely with a wood CLT structural system. The project is a reaction to the current growth in the arts district. A place in DTLA known for its diversity and artistic culture, the area has seen a growth in larger private companies move into the neighborhood setting up office. This project is meant to be a clear diagram that is mediating between public and private interaction. Where the upper office is a private work space, the street level is designed for pedestrian and retail, while a interstitial sculptural form highlights an exhibition space that allows for the private office to share their work with the community. Vessel is an expression of creative culture and progressive changes for Los Angeles's downtown urban fabric.
