The Hangar Office is a LEED Platinum-rated conversion of an obsolete warehouse into a modern training center. Set within a transitioning industrial neighborhood in the Culver City area of Los Angeles, this adaptive re-use project was commissioned by Servicon Systems, a company specializing in sustainable building maintenance services for the aerospace industry.
Though only 3,400 square feet, the building supports a variety of group functions, such as training sessions, receptions, gallery openings, and office-wide meetings. In a nod to the client’s business, the architecture of aircraft hangars provided a conceptual touchstone for the design, informing the project's industrial materials, generous interior space, exposed ceiling infrastructure, and minimal color palette. In addition, new skylights provide abundant natural light, creating an abstract atmosphere of ambient intensity.
By resolving the client’s challenging sustainability and programmatic goals with an architecture of serene clarity, the project expresses a new optimism for the organization.
