1726 Spring Office

Chinatown

 

A 14,000 square foot adaptive reuse of a 1920’s warehouse building into creative offices at the First Street bridge.

 

Built in 1920’s as a machine shop, this concrete frame and steel truss saw-tooth roof building lends itself perfectly to its new creative office use.

The site is a short distance from the Los Angeles State Historic Park and the LA River as well as in walking distance from the Chinatown train station.

A light touch approach to the design maintains the unique character of the building within its context by preserving the original steel roof framing and windows, wood floors and street art graffiti on the building exterior.
