An Alternative Way of Conceiving Mixed-Use Development.

 

     The research of this matrix was conducted over several years. We looked for an alternative to medium and high density mixed-use development. This project includes public spaces within the blocks, institutional facilities above street level, residential units of multiple types, time-share of working spaces, a mix of retail and site-specific public art. It confronts change, future growth, sustainability and affordability.

                                                   HOLLYWOOD HOTEL-OFFICE-CINEPLEX

We called it “Romeo and Julia Pregnant,” kissing. It was a project for a design competition in the heart of Hollywood. It included an 800-seat theater, a cineplex, an office building and a hotel. Most of the lower areas is accessible to pedestrians at street level. The two towers connected to each other at both the 10th floor and at the upper levels, which included restaurants and amenities. The curtain wall on both towers was conceived as a glass artwork.
