Humbolt Loft

2012-2013 — 1400SF — Gigante AG

A comprehensive loft renovation in an adaptive-reuse building north of downtown LA.

With an owner downsizing from a single-family residence, this project sought to both increase the usable space of the unit and greatly improve the quality of materials and fixtures.

Project goals were shaped by the realities of the space. The as-built unit had been rushed to completion, and was cramped and inefficient. Our overriding concern became how to mitigate the effects of a poorly designed MEP routing, thereby creating a more inviting living area.

Personal responsibilities on the project included the production of all deliverables, such as the full Revit model of existing conditions (including the MEP system), the complete plan check submittal and all 3D renderings.
