Los Angeles, California | 2006

For this commercial project tucked inside a strip mall, an enclosed, windowless space became softer and more welcoming through design. Curvilinear forms in the ceiling and seating arrangements stand apart from the exterior rectilinear walls. The gap between is lighted from above and below, illuminating shimmering metal beads that create a translucent boundary between the social center and structural edge.
