Ware Malcomb Wins LABJ Commercial Real Estate Award
LOS ANGELES — Ware Malcomb, an award-winning international design firm, has announced that it has been awarded a 2014 Commercial Real Estate Award from the Los Angeles Business Journal for its work in designing the new 100,000-square-foot Stamps.com corporate headquarters building in El Segundo, Calif. The project earned the Silver Award in the office category, which was presented at an awards ceremony in Los Angeles on Feb. 18.
Ware Malcomb provided interior and architectural design services for this creative office project, which involved transforming two adjacent, three-story office buildings totaling 82,000 square feet into a new, contemporary 100,000-square-foot corporate headquarters building. The renovation structurally connected the two existing buildings with the addition of a new two-story, 18,000-square-foot, high-end lobby with glass box suspended conference rooms, an interactive cafeteria, collaborative lounge areas, fitness center and other employee amenities. Ware Malcomb’s scope of work also included redesigning the main core of the existing building to provide more efficient space layout and easy access, full interior design and architecture services for 60,000 square feet, and a full exterior remodel of the entire building. The project will be featured in a special section in the Feb. 24 edition of the Los Angeles Business Journal.
“We are so pleased to be recognized for our work on the new Stamps.com corporate headquarters,” said Ware Malcomb CEO Larry Armstrong. “This is one of many creative office projects Ware Malcomb has been designing in Los Angeles that are truly setting the standard for this architectural movement.”
The project was managed out of Ware Malcomb’s Los Angeles office, led by Regional Director Radwan Madani. “This project allowed us to combine our architectural and interior design expertise to create a building as innovative and dynamic as the tech industry itself,” said Madani. "We wish the entire team at Stamps.com much continued success in its new award-winning creative office headquarters.”
The general contractor for the project was KPRS (www.kprsinc.com).
This is the second Commercial Real Estate Award that Ware Malcomb has been awarded by the Los Angeles Business Journal. The firm received a Silver Award for Best Industrial Building for 9to5 Seatings corporate headquarters in 2013.
