La Pierce College - Student Service Building
Los Angeles, California
Los Angeles Community College District
Located on the college’s Pedestrian Mall, the mission‐style building is at the new entryway to the college. The three‐story facility centralizes Pierce’s student service departments and is the hub for all student needs on campus. The Student Services Building is a steel frame structure with concrete shear walls, dual glazed windows, a stucco exterior, and a clay roof tile. Ceramic tile accents were used throughout the building. The project was built to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building standards. It is designed and insulated to exceed the California Code of Regulation, Title 24 energy requirements. Exterior circulation minimizes the enclosed building area, eliminating the need for additional heating, ventilating, and air conditioning.
