For more than a decade Meier Partners has led the design for One Beverly Hills, an eight-acre planning project that combines luxury residential buildings—including the Meier Partners designed condominium complex at 9200 Wilshire Boulevard, completed in 2004—with a planned boutique hotel and additional development. The project’s combination of distinctive architecture, thoughtfully integrated open spaces, and highly crafted details are hallmarks of Meier Partners design.
The massing of the project is designed to mediate between the high-rise architecture of Century City, the mid-rise urban fabric of Beverly Hills, and the low-rise houses in the surrounding residential neighborhoods. Two linear structures conceived for the western edge of the site, will be raised above the ground on columns, creating an open ground level that embraces the expansive, organic landscape of the adjacent Los Angeles Country Club. A planned 134-room boutique hotel will occupy the south end of the property, while a prominent corner on the north edge of the site is already anchored to the surrounding neighborhood by the high-end retail along the ground floor of the completed condominium building that includes fifty-four light-filled residential units.
The condominium building at 9200 Wilshire showcases a central void that channels daylight to the circulation paths leading from the building’s main entry to each individual residence. This atrium will also provide natural ventilation by utilizing an innovative glazed airfoil that accelerates airflow at the rooftop to draw warm air out of the building.
