Once a newsroom, printing press and distribution facility for the LA Times, The Press has been reimagined as a creative work campus and food hall. The reinvention of this building celebrates the history and character of the industrial space. Defining elements of the original structure such as the canopies and monolithic concrete walls, the steel frames and the machine rooms, are retained, further reinforcing the idea of a historic ruin, reborn.
The Press’ design interventions embrace natural light and views. Indoor- outdoor relationships are a pervasive component in the space. Loading docks and canopy overhangs become continuous back porches for collaboration and reflection. An open air atrium brings dynamism to the central press line, while a skycut slices across the building to introduce daylight. Landscape ties together the site and structure.
