THE SPRINGS

Downtown, Los Angeles, CA

The Springs symbolizes transformation- both physically and philosophically.  Located in a previously ubiquitous concrete block warehouse from the 1980’s and sandwiched between the Arts District, the LA river and the trucking thoroughfare of Alameda Street it is a crisp, bright pause amidst the industrial exhaust.  It transforms the mundane into an urban oasis. Experimental in nature, the mixed use program which encourages holistic mind/body wellness is integrated into a non-hierarchical layout of elements. The concrete slab has been cracked open by a staccato field of concrete block planters breathing life into the interior of the building. This urban-natural microcosm invites exploration and change.
