OJMR-Architects was commissioned to provide full architectural, interior design and construction administration services for an extensive refurbishment program to the interior and exterior of the mid-century era building, originally designed by Victor Gruen & Associates in 1964. This unique 14-story structure, comprised of 84 units, is located on the border of West Hollywood and Beverly Hills.
The work included upgrading all interior finishes in the main lobby, public corridors and elevators. New exterior canopies at the main lobby entrance and parking garage entrance, upgrading deck/waterproofing finishes on the roof top and lower level pool decks, remodeling the meeting room and kitchen, providing ADA upgrades to public restrooms, and remodeling the management offices, (front) main desk, and mail room. The building went under a complete plumbing re-pipe to upgrade the vertical and horizontal domestic hot/cold water and sewer lines. Other long term maintenance repairs including exhaust fans, duct lining replacement, new landscaping, green/cool roof to replace the old roof, below grade parking garage and grade level planter waterproofing repairs, signage, lighting, updating of phone/intercom system, video/security upgrades, electronic key entry system and a complete repair and painting of the exterior plaster facade. Construction was completed in 2016 after a 28 month construction period.
