  • LPA has designed the new headquarters offices of consumer products company MerchSource located in Irvine, California.

    MerchSource—a company that ideates, designs, sources and distributes consumer products to the nation’s largest retailers—asked LPA to design their California headquarters. The design team took an existing 27,000-square-foot building—originally designed by LPA for a residential developer—and created a flexible, energetic environment that showcases the firm’s product lines and creative design process.

    Showrooms and design studios are enhanced by reclaimed wood flooring, crisp white walls and attention to lighting detail. Bold accent colors and graphics were strategically selected to allow the products and merchandise to be highlighted and easily rearranged. A fitness room and café for employees and guests were an added amenity, and bicycle storage, energy-efficient lighting and appliances, FSC certified wood were used in the space, achieving a LEED CI certification.

    The resulting headquarters facilities foster collaboration and enhance the client experience as they move through the space – engaging and interacting with products and concepts in creation.
