An innovative facility that contributes to the fabric of the neighborhood with its focus on sustainability
The LA Metro Division 13 Bus Operations and Maintenance facility in downtown Los Angeles was the first ground-up bus operations and maintenance facility for Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority in nearly 30 years.
The design was not only meant to be highly functional, sustainable, and efficient, but also an energetic, restorative project that creates a healthier work environment and be a sought-after location for employees. Features such as photovoltaic, 100% rainwater capture, green roof systems, naturally illuminated people spaces, vibrant and open interiors, and shared fitness studio all contribute to the triple bottom line principles of sustainability.
We designed a facility that stands in stark contrast to the uninspired spaces that have become commonplace with most transit facilities. Division 13 is a sleek and modern addition to Downtown, and its environmental elements serve as a model for other buildings that celebrate both function and space.
