The Resort at Playa Vista received a COTE Citation Award at the AIA|LA Design Awards last year.  A private community center serving the residents of Playa Vista, the 25,000 GSF building is organized around two interior gardens / courtyards, separated by a diagonal lobby that extends through the building from south to north, and connects site for pedestrians. Upon entry, a reception desk marks the interior, separating the Pre-Function space, and the Meeting Center to the right, from the main lobby. A sliding glass wall along the outdoor courtyard adjacent to the Pre-Function space allows for an extension of the interior pre-function area to the exterior.

The major volume to the west is a community gym and fitness center on two levels. Its glass walls open to the exterior creating a continuous indoor/outdoor feel as well as allowing for an all-natural ventilation system. The outdoor pool area contains a 6 lane junior Olympic sized pool, adult general recreation pool, children’s wading pool, and spa.  A fire pit is situated on the western edge of the pool area. Family and individually sized cabanas each equipped with power and lighting, are located along the southern edge of the site.  Locker rooms are accessed to the northern edge of the deck, while a secured connection to the Lobby occurs to the east. 

General landscaping around the building will be drought tolerant with a drip irrigation system. An 8 foot high hedge, with integrated security fence, in combination with berms and specimen trees will surround the perimeter of the site. The project has achieved Platinum LEED status.
