The mixed use retail, office strip mall was in disrepair and outdated. We worked on the master plan for the mall area from the parking lots, many pedestrian entry paths and the bay. Views, landscaping, change of use issues. New entry stairs and patios for 2nd story existing spaces were revised. In this photo you see an old kiosk type pavilion being transformed into a drink type bar layered into the stepped sloping site with ramps and stairs. New outdoor patio, dining, and sitting areas were integrated into the bay front main courtyard. We designed the new restaurant and gym along the waterfront.
This 600 sf tenant improvement in the Sherman Oaks Galleria was designed to feel much larger. The support spaces are located in the back and used as a screen wall open above to give the retail more volume. Each display is used to direct you further into the space acting as 3 multiple spaces as you progress through this small store. Ceiling floating screens, color, and lighting have all been used to promote this layered concept of dividing space and attracting customers. We completed 4 T-Mobile stores.
The owners on this project wanted a new entry with high impact. The recording and rental studio, which was previously occupied by James Cameron's company Lightstorm Entertainment, was brought up to code, remodeled from an industrial use, and given this new lobby and corporate offices. For studio and camera rental please see their website.
This project, in one of China's largest malls, was a long narrow retail space with an open area in the far back. Our design concept involved the cantilevered entry out into the mall zone and tying in with the integrated ceiling patterns and lighting within the space. Angled display and gallery kiosks all pull you though the retail space into the rear of the space where there is a small restaurant type eating area and then continued into a jazz club style 2 story space for dinner and entertainment. All design features in the mixed use space tie together into one sculpted space.
