Allsteel Showroom – Los Angeles

Allsteel Showroom - Los Angeles


Allsteel’s new downtown Los Angeles Resource Center achieved WELL Certified™ Gold in the Retail Pilot Program. The 10,222 square foot showroom set goals to enhance indoor air quality; provide access to water, natural light, and healthy foods; promote fitness, comfort, and mindfulness; and serve as an example of design initiatives that can foster wellness. 

Designed for flexibility, the Los Angeles showroom features acoustical clouds and a power and data grid to support changing furniture and technology solutions. Wellness-focused elements include a calming materials palette and a high-performance all-day cafe. Ample access to daylight is accompanied by dramatic 34th-floor views of the hills and downtown Los Angeles.


SIZE: 10,222 SF  


SECTOR: Retail

PROJECT TYPE: Retail Pilot

LOCATION: Downtown Los Angeles, CA, USA 

Here is what they did:

  • Almost all of Allsteel’s products are Indoor Advantage Gold certified, including their Beyond glass and solid wall systems, which meets the VOC requirements for furniture in WELL.
  • Regular cleaning is performed in the space with green cleaners and equipment that meet WELL’s requirements to help maintain a clean indoor environment. By using green cleaners and equipment, we’re making sure we don’t introduce chemicals that could adversely impact our indoor air quality.
  • Nearly every spot in the showroom provides access to natural light and outdoor views. An open-plan space promotes access to natural light and helps show off the expansive views of downtown Los Angeles. Lower-height panels and glass walls in conference rooms were incorporated into the design to help ensure views were unobstructed.
  • The café area was designed to be an inviting location for people to come together and eat, gather for a meeting, or sit and enjoy the views of downtown LA.
  • The LA showroom is located in the City National Plaza, which has a Walk Score of 99 (out of 100), meaning that it is located in a “Walker’s Paradise,” and that daily errands from this spot do not require a car. It also has a Transit Score of 100, meaning that there are a variety of public transit options to support getting people to the space.
  • Three sides of the Allsteel showroom are exterior walls with large windows. The windows provide natural light, views of the outdoors, and additional warmth, when the sun is shining through.

Shangri-La Construction Headquarters

Shangri-La Construction Headquarters

LEED Gold, WELL Gold

Shangri-La Construction’s (SLC) Headquarters is a fresh approach to the typical general contractor’s work environment. The 10,268 square foot office is a welcoming environment that engages staff and visitors alike; one that is aesthetically appealing with exceptional resources and sustainability and wellness at the forefront. To this end, the project is WELL Certified™ Gold – Pilot Program and this LEED® Gold project uses the LEED® Dynamic Plaque™ to manage its building performance. 

Entering the main lobby, visitors are greeted by an expansive combination of reception, lounge, kitchen, and glass-fronted conference room with biophilia throughout including a large “living wall”. The experience is different, well-considered and progressive – values that SLC embodies. Taking cues from hospitality to create something more along the lines of a high-end living area, the space is purposed with making clients feel like they have been invited as guests into one’s home.

PROJECT TYPE: Rehabilitation/ Adaptive Reuse 

LOCATION: Downtown Los Angeles, CA, USA   

Private offices branch off the public space in two directions – one houses the Operations team while Executive, Business Development and Accounting are opposite. Each area is open in nature and served by multiple collaboration spaces encouraging teamwork. A decorative metal ceiling element and blue painted walls act as visual connectors between the areas, reaching out as signposts for movement through the hallways. Exterior offices sport downtown views, and glass office partitions ensure that light filters throughout.

The project is located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles at 550 South Hope Street, a 590,000 square foot building on a .92 acre site in downtown Los Angeles, directly across the street from The California Club and Los Angeles Central Library. The 28-story building, certified LEED Platinum for Existing Buildings, EnergyStar and BOMA’s 360 Performance Building standard, is, by design, one of the few boutique high-rises in the heart of the central business district. Private valet service greets customers and tenants alike. The site offers quick and easy ingress and egress to all of downtown’s major freeways and public transit options. There are more than two dozen shops and restaurants within walking distance, the weekly Farmer’s Market at nearby Pershing Square, and the Los Angeles Central Library next door, plus the 1.5-acre Maguire Gardens.

Kimball Corporate Headquarters

WELL Platinum, Office

Kimball is excited to announce the opening of its newly renovated corporate headquarters. The 52,000 sf location is located at 1600 Royal Street in Jasper, IN and houses 180 Kimball employees. This renovation included a new headquarters for the Kimball Brand and the Kimball International Leadership Team, as well as a central hub at the heart of the campus for all the brands to unite.

Equally important, Kimball also wanted to create flexible and relevant environments that provide employees a space they enjoy while having choices in furniture and technology applications that better support the changing nature of workplace activities.
