The Pacific Design Center’s Red Building is the final building in the triad of towers designed by Cesar Pelli. Its design is comprised of two curved and sloping towers, the west tower at 5 floors and the east tower at 8, that connect by a common lobby. Above the general lobby sits the “Palm Court” terrace which is the slice between each tower, connecting each of the two double-height lobbies that correspond to each tower. 400,000 square feet of office space sits on top of 7 levels of parking. Each floor offers column-free, continuous-windowed spaces The Red Building is clad in transparent and fritted glass, held to its frames by silicone. Vidaris provided consulting throughout design development, contract document, bidding, performance and visual mockup, and shop drawing review phases, as well as monitored the site during its construction.
