A smart, superb ‘jewel’ built in downtown LA’s reinvigorated center Gensler now calls home

As a leading global design firm when Gensler decided to move its Los Angeles office from Santa Monica to an existing building downtown, they did so with a pledge to create a 21st-century prototype of the new office workplace. Issues such as energy and cost efficiency and providing flexible work settings for employees were incredibly important to the design, construction and long-term use of the space. Designed and built within a short nine months, CIR’s team worked carefully through existing site conditions, budget concerns, and a condensed schedule that required stacking crews and multiple shifts- all within a very busy downtown setting. The resulting “Jewel Box,” as its called by owners, achieved LEED Platinum certification- a status Gensler hopes to educate and provide to its own customers as they consider their own office designs throughout the city and beyond.
