A while back I had the opportunity to visit the offices on LPA Inc, whose work we regularly feature. We’ve not only seen their offices in Irvine and San Diego, but been able to see their work for clients like ASICS, Yard House Restaurants, the Surfrider Foundation, and Southland Industries.
While there, I was able to interview staff about the details of their new Irvine office expansion. Erik Ring and Jill Kramer took me through the intricacies of the design and why they chose to do the things they did. One of the items I found most interesting was how the space is used to test new products and technologies. This not only allows LPA to gain practical knowledge of design choices their clients will face, but also acts as a showroom for clients to see products in action.
Special thanks to Ryan Weeda for filming and to LPA for the editing work!
