East Los Angeles College (ELAC)

Atlantic Square repositions an existing shopping center located east of Los Angeles, inviting new dining and shopping options to the surrounding neighborhood as well as an adjacent college.

Our design strips down and emphasizes a Southern California casual lifestyle with native landscaping and strategically placed trellises that are infused by contextual and cultural interventions that brings a crafted and authentic sensibility to the project. The community is further highlighted by adding a diverse food hall marketplace, which features a converted shipping container and unique food trucks. A new drive through restaurant and building are added to create a foodie destination and student hangout hub.

As part of the design process, our firm and the client invited a select group of East Los Angeles College School of Architecture students to engage in an interactive design workshop to help vision the project. This exercise allowed the project team and students to focus on weaving a convergence of experiences rooted on heritage, hospitality and artful innovation that highlights the people of the Monterrey Park community.
