LA Design Center – Los Angeles, CA

This project involved the transformation of two derelict warehouses in South Los Angeles (formerly called South Central) into the first phase of a new showroom district whose purpose is to serve the area’s many furniture manufacturers. The project also includes venues for cultural events. Part of a four-phase master plan, it contributes to the economic renewal of this historically overlooked neighborhood with 20,000 square feet of exterior event space and 80,000 square feet of flexible interior space.

Here is the link to the architects page for this project.  Pay particular attention to how the designers took over the parking space and transformed it into a flexible use, parking and event space.
