Designed and Built by PARC DC – Chamber of Commerce – Pasadena, California
Conversion of two existing single-story building into the office for the Chamber of Commerce of Pasadena. The program included three offices, a reception and conference area, two restrooms, common kitchen and breakroom, and reproduction area.
The existing buildings were joined together by creating a side entrance to the courtyard areas, and offices and supporting desks were created in a way that would promote natural light and transparency between the workers. Micro-lam structural joists were utilized for desk tops and shelves and were built-in to the structure to maximize open space and allow for transparency between the offices. Each office was provided with an assistance desk area to facilitate communication.
