9919 Jefferson Boulevard, that located in Culver City, United States, was designed by Ehrlich Architects, The buildings’ mass and façade design acknowledge the site configuration, solar orientation, and adjacent structures, using a warm colour palette of red and orange glazed elements. On the ground level, the buildings are accessible on all four sides and augmented with landscaped areas.
The upper floors are glazed with window walls along all four sides. The floors are cantilevered to the outside providing all external circulation. All building core functions including stairs, elevators and restrooms have been taken to the outside in order to provide for a maximum of uninterrupted lease space.
The two buildings share a vertical circulation core, located in between the structures within the courtyard space, with additional stairs at the front and the back of the buildings. The front stair facing a main thoroughfare is integrated into the façade screening system, creating an interactive relationship with the public space as it allows the façade to ‘peel off’ the surface of the building and reach out towards the street.
