A fitness center, tenant lounge, state-of-the-art conference center, and bike spa is located on the first and second floors, forming a hub around the two-story lobby in the Sentry Building. As an official historic landmark in the City of Los Angeles, the building’s existing Beaux Arts-style ornamentation could not be altered.

Steinberg Hart’s interior design team abstracted the existing flora and fauna patterns to create a unique recurring design motif. This new pattern creates a visual logic to the interior labyrinth of corridors that meander PacMutual’s three original buildings.

The integration of historic and modern design brings a fresh aesthetic to the individual amenity spaces, which address the needs of savvy, health-oriented workplace tenants. With these renovations, the historic PacMutual Building becomes an active participant in the ongoing revitalization of downtown LA.
