Elevon Campus El Segundo, California
Construction of a 210,000 square foot office development that includes 15 buildings offering creative office suites with 2 integrated retail buildings to support the working environment. The buildings and units within the campus range from 2,000 – 28,000 square feet.
The Elevon campus incorporates features that are intended to promote a well-balanced work-life experience. A key component of helping fulfill this balance is to engage regularly with the outdoors. The buildings include numerous operable windows and double glazed roll-up doors to maximize indoor/outdoor relationships. The courtyards are overflowing with amenities including a fireplaces, water features, wood chaise lounge day beds enclosed in wood slat screens, patio enclosures, concrete seat walls, bocce ball courts, walking trails, and outdoor offices.
Prominent features on the project include large common green areas to exercise, play, work, and relax. Warm materials were used for finishes that are reminiscent of residential design to make the space more neighborly. The layout includes flexible interior floor plans, flowing indoor/outdoor spaces, and retail spaces that are fully integrated as a part of the campus.
Architectural finishes unique to the project are the roll-up patio doors that provide a connection from work spaces to the outdoors, varying roof lines among the buildings, individuality in each building brought together by a simple palette of materials, refined industrial sensibility, standing seam metal roofs which fold down as walls, tilt-up concrete walls, large openings of glass, exposed steel structures (columns, roofs, floors), metal panel elements, and rooftop decks overlooking the central green spaces.
