The new HKS Architects office space in Los Angeles is a full-floor show-piece incorporating the design and conceptual ideas of three separate HKS offices within the United States. The project includes complete demolition and retrofit of existing structure and showcases this exclusive firm with new office buildouts, BIM coordination rooms, resource library, multi-purpose room, interactive conference center and modeling shop. This LEED Silver CI project is a designer’s dream of finishes. It incorporates custom metal, architectural millwork, decorative glass walls and glazing into an open space plan that uses limestone and high-end recycled back carpet tiles. The open floating wood ceiling plan creates an industrious environment with controlled electrical pendant fixtures mounted on metal rods and hard spiral ductwork with custom metal diffusers distributing the upgraded HVAC system.
