ACME 5, San Pedro

Adaptive reuse and preservation of 1940’s retail building for multifaceted creative client, Anton Goss (Internationally known set designer).

Project consists of several remediations to the building including revival of the original façade, and structural improvements to the wall and roof connection. But the signature move is the puncture of the existing terrazzo floor into the storage level below. The contrast of the storage level – industrial concrete box with columns and no windows is an intriguing foil to the wood, brick, and terrazzo level above…so closely related, yet no relation. Steel stair connecting the levels is industrial and elegant at the same time. Completed Fall 2020.
