Metropolis Parcel D

Los Angeles, CA


Parcel D is a 25-story residential tower offering class A amenities to its exclusive residents. The tower design evokes an elegant and refined presence in contrast to the lively cluster of activated design features on the three southern parcels of the Metropolis site.

The exterior facade is a simple yet elegant composition of concave curves on all four curtainwall elevations, contrasted and emphasized by the shadows of the horizontal bands of concrete pushing out at every other floor level in convex curves. The horizontal pattern of the slab extensions is interrupted only at the Southeast and Northwest corners where prominent jetting balconies protrude out to take advantage of the downtown corridor and city views at the mid- rise and high-rise corner units.
