200 S. Oak Knoll, Pasadena, CA

Second Story Addition

MLA was approached by the client to explore a second story addition to an existing dental office building.

Program constraints include minimizing disruption to the existing first floor offices during construction and strict additional parking requirements associated with increasing the project floor area.  An extensive analysis of the Pasadena Zoning Code was undertaken to develop alternate strategies to increase the parking count within the confines of the site. An entitlement package has been prepared and submitted to the City for a public hearing. 

The structural solution for the second story building addition utilizes clear span wood floor trusses supported by steel columns that are located clear of the existing first floor offices. Architectural massing of the roof line, selection of materials and detailing complement the mid-century aesthetic of the existing building.
