“The architectural language of stacked shifting boxes provides opportunities for outdoor extensions of office space in the form of en suite outdoor terraces. These flexible terraces provide space for breakout meetings, social events, and larger gatherings. The orientation of the terraces take advantage of the various views from the site: the Pacific Ocean to the west, the Hollywood Hills to the north and the Baldwin Hills Scenic Overlook to the south. Natural building materials, including the reinforced concrete structure and subtle variations in exterior cement panels complement the floor-to-ceiling glass and native landscaping.” (www.5950Jefferson.com)
