JOGA CHIROPRACTIC CENTER
1993 Los Angeles Business Council Award
Best Commercial Interior (REA Architects, AIA)
2812 Santa Monica Boulevard is a 14,000 square foot commercial building. The four outward jutting metal storefronts are capped by dark gray cast iron drains with plate metal caps; abstractly mimicking the existing palm trees in the parkway, increasing vertical interest of the building and contrasting with the concrete block exterior.
Joga Chiropractic Center is a 1,250 square foot medical space whose design is based on the definition of chiropractic science: manipulation of the spine. The most prominent feature of the space is a skewed spine that slices through the bathroom, 2 treatment rooms and office, thrusting out into the business area. The spine creates a stepped section, allowing the corridor to feel wider, and brings light into the rooms through clerestory windows. Additional clerestories between the treatment rooms allow the spine to be viewed from within the rooms.
