OFFICE p.S. is the architects for the new Mazda dealership of Culver City. Situated on the busy intersection of Sepulveda and Washington Blvds, this new dealership aims to serve the westside of Los Angeles with the hip Mazda brand of vehicles. We have the privilege of bringing forth the new direction of the Mazda brand by being one of the first dealerships in the nation to reveal the prototype design style that aligns the architecture with the design direction of the vehicle lineup. Utilizing our expertise in urban design, the building incorporates an existing showroom with wonderful pedestrian access and street exposure with a new addition strategically slotted onto a narrow site abutting the 405 freeway. The compact nature of the building provides a more intimate experience for guests while still providing for a mass majority of amenities found in dealerships 3 times its size. Working closely with multiple city agencies and as always being able to convey the zoning and building code in a unique way has allowed for a smart and efficient design that makes the project a vital and important part of the community.
