TEN Office by Nadel Architects, El Segundo – California

February 9th, 2018 by Camra’s blog

Nadel Architects recently completed the design for the headquarters of TEN: A Discovery Communications Company, the largest automotive media company in the world, located in El Segundo, California. Nadel’s design incorporates eye-catching features, including a 32-foot-tall, gate-like element to create a major presence for the building all the way to adjacent Rosecrans Boulevard.

The newly completed office also highlights TEN’s desire to provide a nature-focused environment for employees by the addition of a multi-use patio accessible through a series of tall sliding glass panels. Offering a third place to collaborate, relax and experience a change of pace, the multi-use patio includes an outdoor kitchen, break area and landscaped recreation space.

Additional noteworthy design elements of the project include newly installed large windows in the building’s existing tilt-up panels, optimizing the amount of natural light for interior spaces; a series of tall projected bays along the Douglas Street elevation, creating dynamic rhythm and an added presence; and tall aluminum screen and canopy structures wrapping the southeast corner and repeated to create a pronounced entrance.

At night, strong architectural lighting for the canopy and trellis structures creates a distinct signature for the building. For accessibility, the public entrance was also shifted to the side of the building, adjacent to visitor parking and directly across from the neighboring building, which TEN also occupies.
