The Portal

One of KHS&S’s more unusual projects has been the design and construction of “complex geometry” for the creation of a portal for a medical offi ce space in Playa Vista in the Silicon Beach area of Los Angeles. “The trick was how to achieve complex geometry simply and do it effi ciently,” Walter says of the project completed last year.

KHS&S took a digital model and developed it to produce the design concept through The SLAM Collaborative, an architecture fi rm off ering integrated construction services, landscape architecture, structural engineering and interior design.
