LAPD Motor Transport Division + Main Street Parking (MTD + MSP)

Los Angeles, California
United States

This police station allowed the LAPD to vacate their aging and earthquake-damaged Parker Center and relocate to a state-of-the-art facility which houses nearly 2,400 workers.

In the lobby, fluorescent linear and MR16 luminaires are offset to complement the warm wood paneling while creating a sense of movement and flow. As a nod to downtown LA’s rich orange grove history, Catherine Wagner’s “Ghost Grove” art installation is the focal point when viewed through the transparent auditorium lobby from the exterior plaza.

HLB’s scope included the above spaces as well as site landscape lighting, a 450-seat auditorium, reception, command center, conference rooms, offices, and public circulation.
