Pacoima Neighborhood City Hall 2004-Present | Los Angeles, California

The Pacoima Neighborhood City Hall will provide municipal outreach and create a grand public space for the citizens. The new complex will support the neighborhood with city services and a district council office, serve the expanding commercial district, provide civic spaces for community participation in governance and recreation, and offer additional neighborhood parking.

We believe the building should be visible, prominent, and transparent; it should confer equal status on the city services and Citizens Hall; and the communal public spaces must be a great attractor to all ages on a daily basis. In the tradition of public buildings, the PnCH will be monumental, yet also informal and populist—hence, the anti-monumentalism of its openness, accessibility, and transparency.

The construction is Type 3 above subterranean garage. The buildings are steel and wood frame with glass storefront/curtain wall, sunscreens and sarnafil roofing. The large central courtyard is a hard and soft surface. It is a 38,000 square foot site consisting of the 12,000 square foot building complex, public plaza and gardens, and the 21,000 square foot subterranean parking. The project will be LEED certified.
