Meta Playa Vista
Los Angeles, CA
The Meta Playa Vista project’s unique base building conditions created a fun challenge to implement Meta’s Global Standards and achieve LEED Gold status. To solve the programming requirements of increased ventilation and higher heating and cooling needs, we repurposed and rezoned existing base building equipment with the inclusion of additional systems to address the thermal comfort requirements for the space. Given the architectural elements of a clean roof, this was all achieved with equipment wells within the upper floor. A full-service kitchen and dining facility was provided requiring new vertical pathways to accommodate program requirements, strategically located with consideration of the post tension structural tendons. A combination of hidden (acoustic treatment) and exposed equipment/ductwork throughout aligned with Meta’s desire for visible elements of the MEP systems.
