Twelve555 Renovation

Twelve555 is a multi-tenant office building at the southern end of Silicon Beach, an emerging region that is home to hundreds of technology startup companies. SOM’s goal is to activate Twelve555, both visually and socially, by repositioning and renovating the core-and-shell building and its 300-car parking structure.

The exterior renovation calls for replacing the building's entry steps and landing and creating updated identity graphics. Attractive signage will offer a new experience for tenants and visitors. An exterior courtyard will be redesigned to provide outdoor meeting space, communal picnic tables, a fire pit, a bocce ball court, and abstract wall murals.

Inside, the plan entails achieving more usable floor space, reconfiguring the circulation on the ground level, and enhancing the connection between the lobby and the courtyard via sliding glass doors. A host of amenities will be added to the lobby area, including a pantry, upgraded lighting and finishes, and meeting spaces with advanced technological systems.
