Park Fifth

High-Rise Living for a New Generation of Angelenos

Park Fifth continues LA’s lineage of urban life with newfound energy and style. Together with our client, MacFarlane Partners, our Architecture and Interiors teams designed a timeless, curated living experience for LA professionals. The 25-story luxury tower of housing and retail captures the legacy and allure of Pershing Square and offers residents access to a world of high design. Park Fifth's full-height marquee element and floor-to-ceiling windows echo the grand theater scale of the former Philharmonic Auditorium. Welcoming residents and guests at the entry, a custom-designed laser-cut, granite slab at the tower’s base honors the rich, artful story of the historic building. Inside, refined, sculpture-like finishes complete the sophisticated amenity spaces and highly appointed residences. Creating the mixed-use tower combined our expertise in urban living design, 3D modeling technology, urban infill, and historical research. By working closely with the City of Los Angeles, we were able to redefine the city's 240-foot height restrictions and create a 360-degree rooftop amenity experience offering panoramic views and complete with a pool, bar, lounge and fitness area. As one of the first of its kind in the city, the innovation paved a path for future high-rises to come.

The Abigail

Family-focused Apartments

Conceived as a family-friendly, community-centered apartment complex, The Abigail is an elevated take on affordable housing design in Portland’s Pearl District. The first project in Portland for the Bay Area’s BRIDGE Housing, The Abigail connects residents to one another and to the city. Named for equal-rights pioneer Abigail Scott Duniway, this development is an inclusive space with family-sized units and four community spaces. Two buildings connected by a light-filled bridge provide 128 affordable and 27 market-rate apartments. Four outdoor spaces offer moments for group events, relaxation, and play. Each building wing responds to its surrounding environment—the river and train to the east; the city streets to the west. In June 2017, The Abigail received LEED BD+C: Multifamily Midrise (v2008) Gold certification.

Cornish Commons

Artistic Living for Students

Cornish College of the Arts is a small, private liberal arts school dedicated to educating students in an environment that nurtures creativity and prepares them to become artists, citizens, and innovators. Located in the rapidly expanding South Lake Union neighborhood in Seattle, Cornish was in urgent need of housing for 300 students due to an expiring lease. Our team designed a 20-story high-rise that accommodates student housing, academics, and academic offices that was delivered on an aggressive, 28-month schedule—from conception to opening. Our team streamlined communication and worked closely with the owner, developer, and contractor to shorten timelines and lower costs. The LEED® Gold for Homes Mid-Rise is a new live/learn center that's become an icon for the campus.

Harborview Medical Center BiPlane OR

A Hybrid Operating Room for Neuro Surgery

This project starts with a complex need: An operating room (OR) for Harborview Medical Center that allows their neurosurgical team to use bi-plane imaging technology in the same space in which they operate on their patients. Ankrom Moisan partnered with Aldrich to lead the design-build effort. By leveraging continuous user engagement and feedback, we designed a 2,000 sq. ft. room for neurology (specifically craniotomies) and cardiovascular procedures, with the potential to flex at a moment's notice to accommodate emergency cases. Using an integrated ceiling system, the remodeled hybrid OR deftly orchestrates the elaborate dance of moving equipment all within an operating space. The custom ceiling coordinates diffusers, lighting zones, and booms in an efficient pattern to support multiple procedural layout configurations.
