Using the Beacon Building at Helm's Bakery, this conceptual aquarium project was to utilize the space for multiple functions: Aquarium Showroom, Retail, Education and Customized Aquarium Design.
The architectural elements of the exterior building were to be mirrored on the interior walls, giving a "lost city of Atlantis" feel to the showroom and educational area. The rest of the space was to be defined by sculptural design elements used intended to give the space a dramatic feel.
One of these elements, an organic column with a jelly fish tank perched within its "branches" is echoed again in the terrazzo floor detail and the wall separating the public area of the space from the private offices beyond.
Status: School Project
Location: Beacon Building, Helm's Bakery, Culver City, CA
