The Broad Foundation and Family Offices

Shubin Donaldson en tant que Architects.

How can a series of curated spatial experiences help promote a company’s values?

When The Broad Foundation and Broad Family Offices looked to move their headquarters from Century City to a location that’s more accessible to the people they represent and support, they once again asked ShubinDonaldson to team up with their long-time family design consultant Jennifer Littke of SETSTUDIO to design their new office in Downtown Los Angeles. Located On Bunker Hill, one block from The Broad Museum, this high-rise office space is organized as a series of curated spatial experiences that help promote the company’s values.

As you proceed through the elevator lobby, your first experience is the Education Library – a warm, textured, inviting social space designed to express the Foundation’s emphasis on education. Filled with a rich material palette, all the way up to the low coffered ceiling, this room, which is based on the Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand exhibition “House for a Young Man”, serves as a domestic, communal space aimed to induce curiosity and promote conversation. Fold-up windows help connect the Library to the Kitchen, simultaneously acting as a serving space for the combined social area.

Transparent private offices are in the project’s core while open workspaces surround the building perimeter creating an egalitarian bright work area filled with natural light and views of the city skyline. The architecture, with its clean, simple lines, and elegantly detailed office fronts trimmed in white oak, lends itself as the ideal backdrop to the client’s impressive art collection. It is complemented by the circulation spaces, which double as curated fine art galleries.
