Bringing Buildings Back to Life
a sample of the most unique adaptive reuse projects our teams have tackled.
Every building has a story to tell. And over time, a building may end up having a second and third (or sometimes a fourth) act throughout its useful lifespan. Purpose-built and designed to achieve unique client needs, here are 6 projects that showcase the many lives of a building:
Western institutional review board (wirb)
IA helped WIRB consolidate staff into a single site. The result was the transformation of a former industrial plant with the design of a research facility.
Bumble bee foods
Relocated to the historic Showley Brother’s Candy Factory building near PETCO Park, IA created a space that preserves and showcases the historic structure while reflecting the Bumble Bee brand throughout.
IA turned a decommissioned airport terminal at Springfield Branson National Airport into a regional operations center and brand statement for this travel industry icon.
Sapientnitro – Miami
Transforming a raw parking structure and several former retail bays into a clean envelope, this award-winning space reflects the local brand and culture and helps foster creative energy.
california institute of technology
IA helped in the restoration and preservation of the Robinson Astrophysics Lab at Cal Tech’s campus in Pasadena. The result: the first laboratory in a historic building to be certified LEED platinum in the nation.
Sapientnitro – santa monica
Celebrating light and raw authenticity of the previous warehouse space, IA’s design of SapientNitro’s Santa Monica office allows creative teams to thrive inside of a truly adaptable indoor and outdoor work environment.
