Just four years after moving into the historic Wonder Bread factory in East Village, LPA has outgrown its location. The design firm’s new building is situated on National Avenue and was constructed in 1935 as a shoe factory. Later converted into a mixed-use space, the historic structure is a few a blocks south of the previous East Village location.
The new location allows the firm to accommodate the growth of the office and expand its integrated design practice. The new space includes 50 workstations, four hoteling stations, two 12-person conference rooms and a large collaborative room that can be used for project work space and team meetings.
The space is LEED CI Gold certified and exceeds California’s Title 24 standards and the 2030 Challenge for interior spaces. Additional sustainable design features include: high-performance, suspended LED ambient lighting with LED task lighting at workstations; flexible modular furniture with 70 percent recycled content and low-flow plumbing; and efficient water closets reduce water consumption by 35 percent.
