Completed in spring 2016, K2LA at 685 New Hampshire is the second phase of Century West Partners’ K2LA development. Located in Los Angeles, K2LA is a three-building, work-live-play urban development project. The three buildings consist of a combined 478 units of luxury multifamily apartments with amenities such as fitness centers, business centers, rooftop spas and outdoor decks with grilling areas. For 685 New Hampshire, Century West Partners turned to DFH Architects and partners David Hibbert and James Fischer for the integrative design of the facility.
Leafs from an Architect's Journal
My phone rang one morning last October with a fuzzy call from a management company in London: an international retailer needed a California architect. It became clear enough through the static to understand that a UK-based perfume company was working on their American rollout. It sounded like it could be fun, with high-end details and a fast schedule. A few days later I was uber-ing to a meeting in the lobby of a boutique hotel in Beverly Hills, just around the corner from their in-construction store on Rodeo Drive.
