DPR Construction needed a new location for its Pasadena office to accommodate future growth and provide spaces for the company’s collaborative and social culture. With the goal to create a flexible and functional space, LPA interacted with DPR as both the client and general contractor of the project.

The location is a third level approximately 8,000-square-foot property previously used as a restaurant in downtown Pasadena. Designers pulled inspiration from the Old Town urban environment with weathered brick facades, paned operable windows and detailed storefront trims to explore an urban loft concept.

DPR’s new office includes a central pavilion for gatherings and collaborative sessions, a customized communal kitchen with a residential range and an expansive deck with an outdoor barbecue.The interior is splashed with warm colors, sustainable finish materials and graphics that reflect the company’s values. To further support DPR’s active lifestyle, bike racks and office showers were included.
