ARCHITECT: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill
GENERAL CONTRACTOR: W.E. O'Neil
PRODUCT: Custom Perforated Panels, Aurora Attachment System
2021 saw a lot of changes, and when it comes to architectural design for workspaces, this was especially true. Instead of enclosed, stuffy offices, LMU’s School of Film and Television sought a different way to work. Organized as a campus within a building, designers envisioned an open culture that allowed staff and students to enjoy the outdoors while protected from the harsh California sun.
The vision was to create an adaptable environment with circulation paths and large communal spaces separated with perimeter glass, windows and a perforated metal veil.
As a white-box project that featured a four-story academic building, we could accommodate a unique design that served both style and function. The façade needed to flow alongside the University’s existing campus palette while considering the art and film students inside.
Perforated panels fold in and out across the face of the building, connected using an Aurora attachment system that suspends the façade seemingly in mid-air. Balancing the light and the acoustics of the building, our distinctive structure speaks to the multi-level creative flow of the students and staff inside.
