2510 Temple Los Angeles – Filipinotown Building

Design: Patrick Tighe Architecture

2510 Temple Los Angeles Building

Perched within the Historic Filipinotown, just west of Downtown Los Angeles, this building responds to its context both at city-wide and neighborhood level.

The project addresses the ongoing housing crisis in Los Angeles through the density of housing units. Here, a combination of 47 market-rate and affordable housing apartment units sit atop a storefront commercial space located at the ground level. A strong concrete base grounds the project within a full block on Temple Street.

Accommodating the Public component of the project including commercial space, and a double-height lobby, the base activates the streetscape and gives the project a human-scale by mediating between it and the apartment buildings above. Clad in metal panels, the sculptural form of the entry serves as a connection between the public and private areas of the project.

The building also hosts semi-public amenities such as a gym, shared offices, and a community room, which gives the project an urban identity. The base also serves as a plinth, separating the private/ residential portion of the project from the public areas.

Clad in cement fiber board, the apartment buildings are organized around a courtyard, with a pool and spa at its center consisting of one floor of flats and two levels of townhouse style apartments, the building is capped in a metal panel roof, sloped to maximize natural light and ventilation through north-facing clerestory windows.
