Santa Monica Parking Garages

Los Angeles based architecture firm, Brooks and Scarpa, recently completed improvements to the Frank Gehry designed parking garages at Santa Monica place mall. Not only does their design create a more walkable and friendly environment for the popular 3rd street promenade, but it evokes a modern twist on the typical parking garages that come to mind.

Looking to preserve iconic elements of the original structure - including the beloved steel mesh signage created by gehry, the enhancement seamlessly blends new components with the old to create a contemporary urban aesthetic. A multifaceted new facade transforms the street-side appearance, altering the viewers perception of space and function while visually integrating the building with the complex fabric of the city.
