HR&A is a workplace for an urban planning firm located in a high-rise complex in downtown Los Angeles.
To address their stated need for an open work culture, the design divided the workplace into interlocked pairs of semi-private spaces. There are no traditional private offices. Open and semi-private work areas dovetail with a library, lounge, a phone booth and 2 conference areas. The space frames aerial views of the city, bringing in light and transparency and in a way keeping the planners connected to their city.
