PacMutual Building

Los Angeles, California

Located in downtown Los Angeles, the historic PacMutual Building is a complex of three buildings, the oldest of which dates back to 1908. The project aims to develop amenity spaces that will attract a progressive mix of creative media tenants. A Fitness Center, Tenant Lounge, state-of-the-art Conference Center, and Bike Spa will be located on the first and second floors, forming a hub around the two-story lobby in the Sentry Building.

As an official historic landmark in the City of Los Angeles, the building’s existing Beaux Arts-style ornamentation could not be altered. Steinberg’s interior design team abstracted the existing flora and fauna patterns to create a unique recurring design motif. This new pattern creates a visual logic to the interior labyrinth of corridors that meander throughout PacMutual’s three original buildings.

The integration of historic and modern design brings a fresh aesthetic to the individual amenity spaces, which address the needs of savvy, health-oriented workplace tenants. With these renovations, the historic PacMutual Building becomes an active participant in the ongoing revitalization of downtown LA.
