Current Projects

Marina Park

Marina del Rey, CA

Client: SteelWave, LLC

Marina Park is a reinvented office campus with new creative spaces and amenities designed to create a more collective way to work and relax.

Collaborating with the project architect, the new “ribbon” plaza was designed to encourage movement between inside and outside, creating additional workspace for meeting and collaborating, as well as for relaxing. The plant materials are not only California friendly, but also provide a sensory experience through pops of color and texture. The hardscape also incorporate a diverse mix of materials – concrete, wood, steel, cobble – softened around the edges with grasses and succulents. An array of corten steel panels provides a unique screen from the adjacent parking area and an opportunity for signage.

LCI is assisting with the design implementation, construction document preparation, agency approvals, construction administration and project close-out.

Criminal Justice Training Center at Golden West College

Huntington Beach, CA

Client: Orange Coast Community College District

This facility in Huntington Beach is an innovative training center that develops the learning and technical skills of both cadets and students by providing an environment that best balance quality enhancements of both building design and landscape. This goal was achieved by creating a park scenario for passive recreation, biddle and grinder courses for physical training activities and memorial as a focal point next to the building’s main entry. A number of prominent trees were protected through strict construction and management procedures while applicable stormwater techniques such as Modular Wetland Biofiltration systems were considered for the project.
