Culver City City Hall Revisted 25 Years Later

As one of the earliest projects for the Gonzalez Goodale Architects, the Culver City City Hall and Civic Plaza remains a seminal and highly celebrated fixture for both the City and our studio. 25+ years later, we are lucky enough to be able to revisit our design and client to reorganize the administrative and departmental functions of the building. As a testament to the original design and vision, the facilities were planned to be as highly adaptable and expandable as possible to ensure the City could best serve the needs of their staff while maximizing space and operational efficiencies. Our team is currently working with staff leadership to reprogram and consolidate departments, carefully studying collaborative workspace needs while also identifying space for revenue producing commercial opportunities.

Student Career Pathways In partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District and their ACES Program (Architecture, Construction, Engineering Students), Gonzalez Goodale Architects and Kemp Bros Construction are continuing our collaborative student workshops and career mentoring we began last year at Legacy High School. Focusing on principles of current design and building trends applied on the new International Studies Learning Center project, students have been introduced to fundamentals of Architecture and Engineering through hands-on experiments and exposure to professionals in the field.


Westside Family YMCA Opens

We are proud to announce the recently opened and already very popular Westside Family YMCA. A first of its kind joint-use development between the YMCA and Los Angeles Unified School District, the new facility sits on the University High School campus and serves both the public Sawtelle community and students with athletic and aquatics center.

The highly anticipated new location includes a visitors and administration center, competition and recreational pools, dedicated dance and exercise classrooms, gymnasium, weight room, and rooftop running track and courts.

Reimagined Library

Our long time client-partners at Alverno Heights Academy are thrilled with the transformation of their outdated library into a "Learning Technology Center'. Through the reintroduction of natural light, refocusing uses to flexible study and social spaces, and a complete modernization of systems and furniture throughout, the reimagined center is a new heart of the campus.
