Gallery: LA’s 40th Annual Architecture Awards Celebrate Sustainable Des...

 

Lofts at Cherokee Studios by Pugh + Scarpa The Lofts at Cherokee Studios is one of the greenest mixed-use buildings on the West Coast. In addition to its LEED Platinum rating, Cherokee contributes to the urban fabric of LA through iconic architecture and cultural preservation. Professional home recording studios on-site keep artists working where they live and preserves the rich history of musicians like Frank Sinatra, David Bowie, and Michael Jackson who recorded over 300 gold and platinum albums here.

The honorable Anthony Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles, was on hand at the awards, noting that as a major metropolitan city, Los Angeles contains more LEED certified buildings than other similarly sized cities in the US. While it is hard to say where he’s getting his information, the LABC’s awards are testament to the wide variety of sustainable buildings that are popping-up around the city. Hopefully this is a trend that only continues to increase over time.
